Bat Conservation: Global evidence...effects of interventions
[781907807893]

£21.99

by Anna Berthinussen, Olivia C. Richardson & John D. Altringham

This book brings together scientific evidence and experience relevant to the practical conservation of bats. The authors worked with an international group of bat experts and conservationists to develop a global list of interventions that could benefit bats.

For each intervention, the book summarises studies captured by the Conservation Evidence project, where that intervention has been tested and its effects on bats quantified. The result is a thorough guide to what is known, or not known, about the effectiveness of bat conservation actions throughout the world.

Bat Conservation is the fifth in a series of synopses that will cover different species groups and habitats, gradually building into a comprehensive summary of evidence on the effects of conservation interventions for all biodiversity throughout the world.

By making evidence accessible in this way, we hope to enable a change in the practice of conservation, so it can become more evidence-based. We also aim to highlight where there are gaps in knowledge.

Evidence from all around the world is included. If there appears to be a bias towards evidence from northern European or North American temperate environments, this reflects a current bias in the published research that is available to us. Conservation interventions are grouped primarily according to the relevant direct threats, as defined in the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN)ís Unified Classification of Direct Threats (www.iucnredlist.org/technical-documents/classification-schemes).

Readership level
This book is written for people who have to make decisions about how best to support or conserve biodiversity. You might be a land manager, a conservationist in the public or private sector, a farmer, a campaigner, an advisor or consultant, a policymaker, a researcher or someone taking action to protect your own local wildlife.

The synopses summarise scientific evidence relevant to your conservation objectives and the actions you could take to achieve them. We do not aim to make your decisions for you, but to support your decision-making by telling you what evidence there is (or isnít) about the effects that your planned actions could have.

Keywords
bat, bats, conservation, evidence-based, habitat loss.
