Nature Conservation - Concepts and Practice
Edited by Dan Gafta and John R Akeroyd
This book provides a multi-disciplinary coverage of the broad fields of species, community and landscape
conservation. The wide panel of contributors, including botanists, zoologists, ecologists, architects, lawyers and
journalists, consider a range of topics in vegetation and biodiversity assessment, planning and management of
conservation zones and protected areas, together with historical and social/legal issues of the environment and
nature conservation. The case-studies reported emphasize the importance of traditonal phytosociologal, floristic
and faunistic research, in combination with cutting edge molecular biology and genetics. The book celebrates
the life's work of Professor Franco Pedrotti, who has done so much to propagate a holistic view of conservation.
