Population dynamics and animal behaviour are two subjects which have developed almost independently, despite widespread acceptance of the idea that they must be related. This book provides a novel framework for combining these two subjects and then shows how to consider a range of conservationissues. It is aimed at students and researchers in animal behaviour, population ecology, and conservation biology.
William J. Sutherland is at University of East Anglia.

Editorial Reviews

`The chapters of the book are arranged in a very logical fashion, moving from one subject to the next in a natural progression. ... Readers will be pleased to find the text both readable and informative. ... this is a fine example of a book that will be useful to a range of readers whetherthey be undergraduates, postgraduates or researchers in various fields. Well written, clear and informative, this is really the way all such books should be presented.'Journal of Animal Ecology, 66, 602-605
