Book description

The development of international wildlife law has been one of the most significant exercises in international law-making during the last fifty years. This second edition of Lyster's International Wildlife Law coincides with both the UN Year of Biological Diversity and the twenty-fifth anniversary of Simon Lyster's first edition. The risk of wildlife depletion and species extinction has become even greater since the 1980s. This new edition provides a clear and authoritative analysis of the key treaties which regulate the conservation of wildlife and habitat protection, and of the mechanisms available to make them work. The original text has also been significantly expanded to include analysis of the philosophical and welfare considerations underpinning wildlife protection, the cross-cutting themes of wildlife and trade, and the impact of climate change and other anthropogenic interferences with species and habitat. Lyster's International Wildlife Law is an indispensable reference work for scholars, practitioners and policy-makers alike.

Reviews

'The book closes on a cliff-hanger moment just before the events of the Tenth COP to the CBD, at which it was revealed - to nobody's surprise - that the international community had roundly failed to meet its 2010 commitments in halting global biodiversity loss. The reasons behind this collective failure are admirably covered in this excellent and highly recommended text, which shares the cautious optimism of the original in the potential of multilateral action to effect a genuine improvement in the conservation status of biodiversity … With this second edition, symbolically coinciding with a crucial year for international biodiversity law, the authors have produced a worthy successor to Lyster's celebrated original work.'
