Reviews

'...a very comprehensive review of a really interesting subject...This book is ideal for graduate students and researchers, and will also serve as a useful tool for the growing number of environmental consultants and professional conservationists.' British Wildlife, December 2004. This is an excellent text in its field ... Although aimed at the specialist (who should see this as a must-buy text) the material is accessible enough for the keen amateur or student to gain much from the work. A text such as this bodes well for the rest of the series. TE News This book is the first of an intended series each of which will treat a taxonomic group, or a broad subject area ... Given the growing importance of conservation, especially in the developing world, such a series is welcome and timely, and potentially influential ... I look forward to more in this series.
