About the Authors
  • Biodiversity is recognized to be of global importance, yet species and habitats continue to be under increasing pressure from human-induced influences. Environmental concerns are high on the political agenda, driving increased legislation to protect the natural environment. The starting point for much of this legislation is the requirement for a comprehensive biodiversity audit. This Handbook provides standard procedures which will enable practitioners to better monitor the condition of the biodiversity resource, resulting in improved data upon which to base future policy decisions and actions.

    • Comprehensive - provides best practice methods for surveying a broad range of habitats and species
    • Unique in providing information on both survey methods and on current methods for evaluating ecological data in a single volume
    • Authoritative - written and edited by a team of experienced field ecologists

    “Planning approaches, international conservation agreements-that might affect collecting methods, key references, and a glossary round out this technical reference work.”
    Choice

    "The Handbook is very well organized and presents practical, hands-on biodiversity survey and monitoring advice in a concise, conceptual framework. It contains a wealth of information, hints, and tips and is an invaluable reference book for biodiversity assessment."
