As the 1st booklet devoted to antelope conservation, this quantity units out to diagnose the explanations of the drastic declines in antelope biodiversity and in this foundation determine the best issues of motion. In doing so, the ebook covers imperative matters within the present conservation debate, particularly concerning the administration of overexploitation, habitat fragmentation, disorder transmission, weather swap, populations genetics, and reintroductions. The contributions are authored through world-leading specialists within the box, and the ebook is an invaluable source to conservation scientists and practitioners, researchers, and scholars in similar disciplines in addition to lay humans.

It provides a synthesis of analysis carried out over a span of 50 years, usually at the wildebeest within the Ngorongoro and Serengeti ecosystems, the place 80 percentage of the world’s wildebeest inhabitants lives.
