A worthwhile read for students and professionals alike who are concerned with conservation and management of captive and wild populations. * Malgorzata Wisniewska et al., Biological Conservation * This is a compelling read; I went cover to cover without putting it down. The authors have made a significant and helpful contribution here and one that will surely inspire young behavioral ecologists to keep probing the links between behavior and conservation. * John P. Swaddle, The Quarterly Review of Biology *
