"This volume will be an essential resource for mammalogists, resource managers, and applied ecologists involved in research or conservation of martens, sables, and fishers.... The volume has been carefully edited and reviewed, and the thoroughness with which the authors present and interpret recent advances in their specialty areas is really quite impressive." -- Kurt J. Jenkins * Northwest Science * ""This book successfully provides wildlife biologists, resource managers, and policy makers a synthesis of the current state of knowledge on the biology and conservation of Martes species. The scienti?c underpinnings for conservation efforts designed to maintain and enhance Martes populations are well articulated. Although many chapters are genus speci?c, several chapters e.g., sampling and modeling techniques, climate change impacts are relevant to a wider range of taxa. As such, this book will appeal to mammalogists, ?eld biologists, conservation biologists, and policy makers working to understand and conserve Martes and other mammalian populations worldwide."-Sean M. Mathews, Journal of Mammalogy, 952:434-436, 2014" "This synthetic, contemporary volume provides a broad range of knowledge about the genus Martes.... The 20 chapters, clearly written by experts, provide a good balance of topics, such as phylogenetics, physiological ecology, habitat selection, and wildlife management. The foundational knowledge enables readers to understand each chapter even if they are not experts in a particular topic; however, the content is detailed enough to be valuable to professionals. This makes the volume excellent for undergraduates.... It will be a classic reference work, important to biologists and managers and integral to academic shelves. Summing Up: Highly recommended." * Choice * "Recent developments in research technologies such as modeling and genetics, biological knowledge about pathogens and parasites, and concerns about the potential effects of global warming on the distribution and status of Martes populations make new syntheses of these areas especially timely. The volume provides an overview of what is known while clarifying initiatives for future research and conservation priorities, and will be of interest to mammalogists, resource managers, applied ecologists, and conservation biologists." * Northeastern Naturalist *
