From the reviews: "Essential reading for anyone undertaking conservation science. The insights and advice are built on a lifetime of theoretical and practical experience by one of the world's leading professional arthropod conservationists, well known for his publications ! . In reading this book, you are left in no doubt that you are being taught by a master of the immensely difficult practice of conservation, in degrees of difficulty an arena well beyond the comparatively simple task of carrying out field research for publishing papers." (Roger L. H. Dennis, Journal of Insect Conservation, Vol. 15, 2011)
