Book Description:
In recent decades, there has been increased interest in applying science to the management of ecosystems. However, designing research programs that directly support conservation is never straightforward especially for research intended to support protected area conservation. A good understanding of the intensity of threats, their ramifications, and the impacts of conservation is central to conservation. This book and its complement for forests, is intended to increase understanding of what constitutes conservation research in protected areas and how it is applied.
