Conservation Research, Policy and Practice

Conservation research is essential for advancing knowledge, but to make an impact, scientific evidence must influence conservation policies, decision-making and practice. This raises a multitude of challenges. How should evidence be collated and presented to policy-makers to maximise its impact? How can effective collaboration between conservation scientists and decision-makers be established? How can the resulting messages be communicated to bring about change?

Emerging from a successful international symposium organised by the British Ecological Society and the Cambridge Conservation Initiative, this is the first book to practically address these questions across a wide range of conservation topics. Well-renowned experts guide readers through global case studies and their own experiences.

This is a must-read for practitioners, researchers, graduate students and policy-makers wishing to enhance the prospect of their work ‘making a difference’. This title is also available as Open Access on Cambridge Core.
