Following the much acclaimed success of the first volume of Key Topics in Conservation Biology, this entirely new second volume addresses an innovative array of key topics in contemporary conservation biology. Written by an internationally renowned team of authors, Key Topics in Conservation Biology 2 adds to the still topical foundations laid in the first volume (published in 2007) by exploring a further 25 cutting-edge issues in modern biodiversity conservation, including controversial subjects such as setting conservation priorities, balancing the focus on species and ecosystems, and financial mechanisms to value biodiversity and pay for its conservation.
With Wild Business' Chris Sandom and others, ACS co-authors a chapter on Rewilding. Rewilding is a future-oriented restoration proposal that seeks to learn from the past to meet the conservation challenges of today, and secure the ecosystem resilience of tomorrow. It is an ambitious and proactive approach to inspire conservation practitioners to engage with the realities of biodiversity conservation in the 21st century.
