Abstract/Summary "Species Conservation and Management: Case Studies is a collection of population and metapopulation models for a wide variety of species. The chapters deal with many complexities of modeling the life history characteristics of different species in various environments, and address a variety of issues such as habitat loss, exploitation, fragmentation, diseases, pollution, habitat restoration, translocation, and connectivity. Each chapter describes how a species' life history characteristics are incorporated into the model, and how the results can be used for its conservation and management. The book includes a CD-ROM with a demo version of the RAMAS GIS program and data files for all the models."--BOOK JACKET.
