This is the latest book in the excellent Natural Heritage of Scotland series from Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH). The book contains the papers read at SNH's conference on the subject and provides the reader with valuable, high quality, up-to-date information and research, interspersed with stunning full colour images.
The long-term aim for all species management is for thriving and self-sustaining, self-regulating populations of native species throughout their natural ranges. The challenge is to achieve this in the face of increasing pressures from developments, exploitation, habitat loss and climate change.
This book contains 30 chapters which draw on the experience of the many authors from a range of international experts (including scientists, conservationists and managers) in facing and resolving the different challenges presented when trying to manage species in need of conservation, when dealing with invasive non-native species, resolving conflicts of interest between native species and our sustainable exploitation of species.
It then concludes with two chapters that consider how best to deliver species management within a wider ecosystem approach, and how we can continue with meaningful species management in the face of climate change which is having an increasing impact on species and ecosystems around the world.
This is an important contribution to the species management debate at a time when the 2010 Year of Biodiversity target to stop the loss of biodiversity is high on the international agenda.
