Conservation Planning: Shaping the Futureis a collection of contributed chapters that show how working scientists develop conservation plans using the best available scientific methods, data, and technology. Bringing a conservation focus to land management and planning, the authors show how planners creating human developments can still preserve healthy ecosystems for native wildlife by protecting habitat for key species. The book includes discussions on umbrella species, terrestrial and aquatic habitat suitability, conservation linkages, population viability, site selection, land-use trends, climate-change trends, and decision making for long-term conservation planning. Conservation Planning: Shaping the Futureis valuable for those interested in creating balanced and functional landscapes while preserving the natural environment.
