"Learning about the habitat requirements of plants and animals is a
fundamental part of ecology, making the new edition of this seminal
book a must-read for all ecologists and conservation
--David B. Lindenmayer "Research Professor, Centre for Resource & Environmental Studies, Australian National Univ., Canberra "
"Biologists may never completely understand the wildlife they study. However, one universal truth is that wildlife requires habitat to survive. Wildlife-Habitat Relationships: Concepts and Applications is the most authoritative, theoretical, and practical text for students and practicing professionals to better understand, conserve, and manage habitats for wildlife."
--Paul R. Krausman "Professor of wildlife sciences, University of Arizona "
"Thoroughly updated, this newest edition of Wildlife-Habitat Relationships contains fundamental tools and principles for students and practitioners of the art and science of wildlife conservation seen through the critical eyes of those who pioneered contemporary wildlife ecology and management. It is a must-read for anyone interested in saving what remains of nature's legacy and making informed decisions about wildlife management within the context of a contemporary and science-based land ethic."
--Dominick A. DellaSala "executive director, National Center for Conservation Science and Policy, Ashland, Oregon "
"This book's coverage of analysis and interpretation of wildlife-habitat relationships is unique...Morrison, Marcot, and Mannan are to be commended for providing a well done and much needed contribution to the wildlife management literature."
