Omtale: Habitat Conservation
Habitat Conservation examines the relationship between habitat and ecosystem dynamics. Over the last decade scientists have made advances in their understanding of this relationship and this has had major impacts on their approach to nature conservation management. In many habitats conservation management needs to take into account the physical dynamic processes such as the impact of air, soil and water as well as the biological processes. Covering habitats ranging from mountains to floodplains to coastal dunes and rivers this text discusses: how the biological and physical processes interact in each habitat explores the current and future impact of global warming and sea-level rise and; uses case studies to demonstrate how different habitats can be naturally managed and restored. Written by geomorphologists, hydrologists, climatologists and limnologists this is a fundamental text for masters and undergraduate students studying nature conservation, habitat ecology and environmental management. It will also be essential reading for all conservationists, environmental consultants, managers and engineers.
