Wildlife Management and Conservation presents a clear overview of the management and conservation of animals, their habitats, and how people influence both. The relationship among these three components of wildlife management is explained in chapters written by leading experts and is designed to prepare wildlife students for careers in which they will be charged with maintaining healthy animal populations; finding ways to restore depleted populations while reducing overabundant, introduced, or pest species; and managing relationships among various human stakeholders.

Topics covered in this book include

• The definitions of wildlife and management• Human dimensions of wildlife management• Animal behavior• Predator–prey relationships • Structured decision making• Issues of scale in wildlife management• Wildlife health• Historical context of wildlife management and conservation• Hunting and trapping• Nongame species• Nutrition ecology• Water management• Climate change• Conservation planning

Cain III is Assistant Unit Leader, U.S. Geological Survey–New Mexico Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, and affiliate assistant professor in the Department of Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Ecology at New Mexico State University.

" Wildlife Management and Conservation: Contemporary Principles and Practices does a great job introducing readers to the wildlife management triad... and provides an excellent overview of the wildlife profession for students... Although it is an introductory wildlife management text, the information supplied in the book is detailed enough to be of value to professionals."

"This volume is a nice and easy-to-read collection of chapters covering important topics in wildlife management. Including topics such as structure decision-making and climate change makes this book particularly timely. This volume meets its objective to serve as a textbook for undergraduate courses and, as a reference, many will find it useful and interesting in both capacities."
