Professor L. Scott Mills has been named a 2009 Guggenheim Fellowby the board of trustees of the John Simon Guggenheim MemorialFoundation.

Conservation of Wildlife Populations provides anaccessible introduction to the most relevant concepts andprinciples for solving real-world management problems in wildlifeand conservation biology. Bringing together insights fromtraditionally disparate disciplines, the book shows how populationbiology addresses important questions involving the harvest,monitoring, and conservation of wildlife populations.

  • Covers the most up-to-date approaches for assessing factorsthat affect both population growth and interactions with otherspecies, including predation, genetic changes, harvest, introducedspecies, viability analysis and habitat loss andfragmentation.
  • Is an essential guide for undergraduates and postgraduatestudents of wildlife biology, conservation biology, ecology, andenvironmental studies and an invaluable resource for practisingmanagers on how population biology can be applied to wildlifeconservation and management.
