Review quote

"This fresh, engaging treatment of conservation biology covers key fundamental concepts from ecology and social science and integrates these into discussions of cutting-edge conservation science. Numerous examples, many from the firsthand experiences of Kareiva (The Nature Conservancy) and Marvier (Santa Clara Univ.), enhance understanding of complex interdisciplinary issues. This work does an exceptionally good job of discussing the many ways that diverse human values influence attitudes toward biodiversity." CHOICE (by D. Flaspohler)
