Ecology If a book could receive a standing ovationthis one is a candidate. Sodhi and Ehrlich have created a comprehensive introduction to conservation biology that is accessible intellectually, and financially, to a broad audienceindeed it is Conservation biology for all.
The book is packed with information, is wide-ranging, and includes most emerging issues that come under the umbrella of conservation biology today.
<br>Navjot S. Sodhi is currently a Professor of Conservation Ecology at the National University of Singapore. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Saskatchewan (Canada). He has been studying the effects of rain forest loss and degradation on Southeast Asian fauna and flora for over 13 years. He has published over 100 scientific papers in international and regional scientific journals such as Nature, Science, Trends in Ecology and Evolution, Annual Review of Ecology, Conservation Biology, Biological Conservation, and Biodiversity and Conservation. He has written/edited several books/monographs such as Tropical Conservation Biology (2007, Blackwell). He has also spent time at Harvard University as a Bullard Fellow (2001-02) and Hrdy Fellow (2008-09) where he now holds an adjunct position.
