The conservation movement is moving rapidly away from traditional protectionist approaches toward nature to more integrated views of wildlife and landscape conservation. This volume reviews modern conservation approaches as they relate to mammals. A team of researchers and conservationists provide focused perspectives on preservation, such as the role of mammals within the conservation movement, how priorities should be set, allocation of funds, and promising techniques and approaches for future mammal protection. In addition, issues of broader conservation relevance are highlighted, including the integration of species and biodiversity approaches, the role of flagship species, and the need for holistic conservation models in the wider context of society and government.
