    (shelved 1 time as ecology-nature-conservation) avg rating — 13, ratings — published Modern wildlife ecology often applies ecological theory to management and conservation of animals, but also includes theoretical studies on species that are considered wildlife.

    Ecosystem services extend the traditional conservation agenda, offering a fuller consideration of the benefits and costs arising from land-use changes and marine spatial planning. It has also been argued, however, that ecosystem services distract from the original mission of . This management-driven, comprehensive book on ecosystem ecology is the only one on the market that covers the entire field, linking conventional ecosystem-level forest ecology to forest management. It features ecological site classification, ecosystem modeling, and strong sections on ecological diversity and the physical environment.
