Wildlife-habitat relationships: concepts and applications

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The objective of this book is to provide in-depth information on the concepts associated with wildlife-habitat relationships. The authors' approach combines basic field zoology and natural history, ecological theory, and quantitative tools. From their perspective, a synthesis of these topics lies at the heart of understanding all natural ecological communities. They designed the book to cover both theoretical and applied aspects of wildlife-habitat relationships with an emphasis on the theoretical framework under which such relationships are studied. They begin with a look at the historical and legislative background under which emphasis on wildlife-habitat relationships evolved. Next they examine habitat from an ecological and evolutionary perspective, habitat fragmentation, ways in which habitat can be measured and the data then analyzed, and ways the behavior of animals fits into analysis of habitat relationships. They close by discussing the development of predictive models and multivariate analysis.
