The Policy and Science of Regional Conservation. PDF/Acrobat file  

A sense of urgency exists among conservationists everywhere. Not only is the present situation grim, but the rates of habitat loss and fragmentation are certain to increase. . . Many wildlands can still be protected, especially in the less populated and wealthier nations. Success in the endeavor depends on two conditions: good science and the popularization of a compelling, practical, and inspiring vision. The book outlines the current body of science - the description, theory, and prescription for large-scale conservation projects.
