The broad perspective of wildlife issues presented in this book make fascinating reading for professionals and non-professionals alike. The authors discuss the ecological impact of introduced species, wildlife rehabilitation, and nonindigenous species. They explain wildlife laws, and why they are failing to protect endangered species. Concrete examples of wildlife issues worldwide are given. This second edition has been re-organized to add focus on ""The Evil Quartet"" - the four principal causes of extinction - and new chapters on ""A History of Wildlife in the U.S."" and ""Can Humans Manage Wildlife?"" Fast becoming a standard textbook in the U.S. in college ecology curricula, the book has international appeal for all ecologists and convervationists worldwide.
