About this item

Many endangered species of wild animals are managed in captivity through studbooks. In this book real studbooks are mined in innovative, integrated and statistically tested ways to illustrate how to maximise information gain for conservation practice, whether for captive or released/reintroduced or managed wild populations. This book is an important tool for species managers, and students and researchers in small population biology and conservation. Studbook analyses are grouped in three interrelated sections: natural history, demography and (quantitative) genetics. A fourth section on conservation illustrates the use of data from captive populations where data from wild ones are missing; and includes a real case-study. The final section deals with issues related to incomplete and missing data and statistical topics. The purpose-written open-source software programs “Population Management Library (PML)” and “studbookR” used for analyses in the book, are available at www.princee.com.
