'... of particular interest to those who are involved in funding, evaluating and developing conservation programmes, both at the species and ecosystem levels. It will also provide a good reference to the ongoing debate of the role of flagship species in biodiversity conservation.' Jonathan D. Ballou, Animal Behaviour '... balanced, clearly expressed and well argued. Ideally it will find a place in research laboratories internationally.' The Australian '... an excellently-structured and highly readable book that deserves wide readership by all those involved in conservation science and also by those considering an entry into this vital field.'
