  • Conservation in the 21st Century

    Like other fields of science, wildlife conservation is a changing field. Threats facing wild populations of apes and other species a few decades ago are likely not the same ones most pressing today, and, even where threats have remained unchanged, more effective means of addressing them are now available. Conservation in the 21st Century: Gorillas as a Case Study draws on the expertise of field scientists in a variety of disciplines to discuss current conservation threats, new approaches to conservation, and potential solutions to conservation using gorillas as a focal species. The first section of the book presents an in depth assessment of the current status of wild gorilla populations, the second and third sections present several novel approaches to conservation that have been explored at several field sites, including new conceptual and technological tools, and also examines the pros and cons of some generally accepted "solutions" (e.g., ecotourism) to conservation issues. Chapters in the final section take a broader view by exploring the role international and national political entities, and non-government organizations, including zoos, can and must play in gorilla conservation. Given the current conservation crisis facing gorillas, and wildlife in general, this book is essential reading for primatologists, biologists, and conservationists searching for both a current assessment of the gorilla's conservation status and, importantly, for ideas and tools that show promise of halting or reversing population declines and putting us on a path to achieving a stable, long-term co-existence of human and wildlife populations.

    This revised and extended second edition of "Identification of tropical woody plants" is a concise representation of vegetative characters of woody taxa. It presents a unique identification system, permitting recognition of plant families in all seasons by means of morphological and macroanatomical features which are easily observable, permanent, and which provide a great deal of taxonomic information.The identification system has been designed in the form of a dichotomous key, which is illustrated with figures of woody plants showing their architecture and the morphological characters of barks, branches and leaves. The book has been revised according to the latest molecular biological findings in taxonomy. Additional families are included, as well as representative examples on color plates. A new key for the main groups of euphorbiacean genera has been included. This field guide will be an essential companion to botanists and ecologists.
