"Road kills seriously affect some animal populations, and this book should be required reading for high school and college students, faculty, and general readers."

"A primary goal of the editors is to broaden the reader’s view of road impacts on small animals by providing the ecological context within which the public infrastructure (roads, bridges, etc.) functions... The book is a call to action for researchers, engineers, landscape planners, and others involved with road ecology to collaborate... to reach common goals."

"University researchers, government agencies involved in transportation issues, land managers, conservation biologists, and anyone concerned with the losses to herpetofauna and small mammals because of roads will find this volume to be an important and insightful resource."

"This volume, both overall or as standalone chapters, will be of particular interest to a wide audience of engineers, biologists, policy planners, and other scholars in related fields, as well as the general public. It is also recommended for undergraduate teaching, as it will provide students with an understanding of the diverse range of issues relevant to road construction and small animal and habitat conservation... What this book has done well is to stress that while there are clear solutions to avoid the road carnage that has resulted in the past where roads and small animals meet, these solutions require coordination and cooperation among a broad range of stakeholders and contributors."

"Managers have largely ignored small wildlife species when mitigating the impacts of roads and traffic. However, when considering nature conservation, smaller wildlife species—especially amphibians and reptiles—seem to be particularly vulnerable. This book synthesizes the impacts of roads and traffic on small wildlife species and presents strong recommendations to address these impacts. Read them and make good things happen!"
