Book description

Conservation of mammals in the coniferous forests of western North America has shifted in recent years from species-based strategies to community- and ecosystem-based strategies, resulting in an increase in the available information on mammalian communities and their management. This book provides a synthesis of the published literature on the role of forest mammals in community structure and function, with emphasis on their management and conservation. In addition to coverage of some of the charismatic megafauna such as grizzly bears, gray wolves, mountain lions, elk and moose, the book also provides a thorough treatment of small terrestrial mammals, arboreal rodents, bats, medium-sized carnivores, and ungulates. The unique blend of theoretical and practical concepts makes this book equally suitable for managers, educators, and research biologists who will find it a valuable reference to the recent literature on a vast array of topics on mammalian ecology.

Reviews

"All mammalogists working with forest species will find the book useful. ...all biologists interested in the general functioning of conifer forests will also find the book interesting as mammals play a key role in most forest ecosystems. ...a goldmine of information of information for any graduate student working on forest mammals in North America." Écoscience

"A valuable reference for researchers and graduate level students in wildlife ecology and field biology. It is also very interesting reading for conservation minded individuals." Wildlife Activist Spring 2004
