Description: Natural Resource and Wildlife Administration fills the much-needed void in relevant publications in these disciplines. It presents a clear perspective on natural resource administration in North America, how it developed, how it is currently structured, and where it might be heading. Various areas of natural resources are so intertwined that wildlife administration, fisheries, forestry and other competitive land uses are heavily discussed. The book consists of four sections, in the first dealing briefly with the history of natural resource management in Europe and moving quickly into the history of management within North America. It also discusses environmental law; agencies that are involved with wildlife and natural resource management; and human dimensions, public relations, and economic concerns. Natural Resource and Wildlife Administration provides solid background on the history of natural resource conservation, critical laws protecting resources, and the nature of agencies. The interconnectivity among natural resources makes this an acceptable text for disciplines such as wildlife, fisheries and forestry. Provides detailed insight on the development of natural resource law and the nature of conservation agencies in North America, and also provides models for international use Includes information on the diversity and roles of various federal, state and non-governmental agencies and how they cooperate as professionals to accomplish natural resources management Leads students to a greater understanding of the politics and interplay of priorities in professional conservation biology Assists the certification processes of professional societies Includes end-of-chapter questions for further thought and discussion, as well as offset boxes throughout the text to help explain more technical subjects
