Andrew S. Pullin is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Biosciences at the University of Birmingham, where he has been teaching Environmental Biology, Ecology and Conservation Biology for a number of years. His research interests include the ecology and conservation of invertebrates, the assessment of biodiversity at species and genetic levels, and the relationship between conservation science and practice. His work has taken him to many exotic locations, including the tropics and the Antarctic, where he has obtained first hand experience of a wide range of conservation problems. In addition to his academic work, he is also involved in the practical aspects of conservation, and serves on the council of several non-governmental conservation organisations. He is involved in the implementation of several species and habitat actions plans, placing him in an excellent position to consider the relationship between conservation problems, conservation science and conservation action. Andrew is the editor of Ecology and Conservation of Butterflies (1994) and the Journal of Insect Conservation.
' ... as well produced and clear as its competitors and that the range of geographical examples is excellent. I shall certainly recommend it as a text for my undergraduate audience ... this is a welcome addition to the library of books on conservation biology.' Journal of Parasitology '... a very readable text taking an unusual route through the notion off conservation ecology ... given the range of material and the focus on applied science, this text is one of the best recent introductions to the subject.' TEG News 'The book is attractively designed and easy to read, avoiding the imitation of web-page clutter that characterizes some recent textbooks. The figures have been redrawn to achieve a consistent and readable visual style. I recommend this text to instructors who are looking for a concise, readable introduction to the core concepts of conservation biology with an international perspective.' Ecology '... a very good introduction and well worth recommending to students.' Glasgow Naturalist
