Conservation science has become a truly multi-faceted discipline, which requires students, scholars and professionals alike to be familiar with concepts from the spectrum of academic pursuits. As a result, producing a readable volume that effectively summarizes the pressing issues biodiversity is faced with and how they can be mitigated is no mean feat. First published in 2004, the new edition has been updated to reflect the changing nature of conservation science, acknowledging and understanding the strong linkages between people and their impacts on biodiversity, as well as their importance in determining how these impacts can be changed. There are a number of excellent titles that attempt to do this for a similar target audience, but the second edition of Hambler and Canney’s text is definitely one of the better ones.
