Connectivity Conservation Management - A Global Guide
Authors: Graeme L. Worboys, Wendy L. Francis, Michael Lockwood
In an era of climate change, deforestation and massive habitat loss, we can no longer rely on parks and protected areas as isolated islands of wilderness to conserve and protect vital biodiversity. Increasing connections are being considered and made between protected areas, and connectivity thinking has started to expand to the regional and even the continental scale to match the challenges of conserving biodiversity in the face of global environmental change.
This groundbreaking book is the first guide to conservation management at regional and continental scales. Written by leading conservation and protected area management specialists under the auspices of the World Commission on Protected Areas of IUCN, the World Conservation Union, this guide brings together a decade and a half of practice and covers all aspects of connectivity planning and management. Y2Y is a featured case study in this book.
