PROFESSOR DANIEL BLUMSTEIN PUBLISHES A NEW BOOK ON CONSERVATION BEHAVIOR

Professor Daniel Blumstein has written, with Purdue colleague Esteban Fernández-Juricic, the first text book of conservation behavior. Conservation behavior is the application of knowledge of animal behavior to solve wildlife conservation problems. Just published by Sinauer Associates, the book--A Primer of Conservation Behavior--is broadly aimed at biologists interested in or practicing conservation biology and wildlife management, including undergraduate and graduate students, conservation biologists, ecologists, wildlife managers, zoo personnel, animal behaviorists, and behavioral ecologists. The goal of the Primer is to nurture the development of biologists interested in using specific animal behavior conceptual and methodological tools to aid in solving biological conservation and wildlife management problems.
