The field of wildlife management has grown enormously in the last half-century. New subjects, such as endangered species preservation, nongame management, and preserving biodiversity have been introduced into wildlife management.
Much of the problems in wildlife management stem from the pressure of human population growth, depletion of natural resources, and environmental pollution. The hunter demands are also a pressing problem of wildlife management.
This textbook includes chapters introducing the contemporary wildlife management concept, wildlife habitat, habitat evaluation and management, wildlife populations, population estimation and analysis, management for preserving natural diversity, and national and international wildlife conservation.
The last chapters deal with the distribution, morphology, and biology of the vertebrate wildlife animals, present amphibia, reptilia, aves, and mammalia classes.
The book is mainly designated as a textbook for the Landscape Architecture Division of the Faculty of Forestry, University of Istanbul.
