Management Planning for Nature Conservation

The first edition of Mike Alexander’s Management Planning for Nature Conservation, brought a new dimension to the modern literature on conservation management. This second edition, a significant enhancement of the original, deals with the development both, conceptual and practical, of adaptive management planning for nature conservation. It is about preparing management plans, and guides the reader through the entire process. Case-studies, including a conservation and access plan, demonstrate the planning process in action. This approach to planning can be applied to any place which is managed entirely, or in part, for wildlife. It can be applied to the management of species or habitats in any circumstance, regardless of site designation. The process is fully compatible with the Convention on Biological Diversity’s ‘ecosystem approach’ to conservation management. Mike Alexander has long been at the forefront of developing management planning for conservation, with experience ranging from Uganda to Estonia, and from Costa Rica to Wales. He is the General Secretary of the Conservation Management System Consortium, a group of organisations with a common aim of raising standards and developing best practice in conservation management and planning. In 2012 Mike Alexander was elected a Fellow of the Society of Biology in recognition of his contribution to nature conservation and in particular management planning. This book has drawn on the experiences and expertise of the CMS consortium and other leaders in both conservation research and wildlife management from around the world. It is essential reading for professional conservation managers and any student studying management planning for conservation within a range of degree and postgraduate courses.

This handbook provides a general introduction to the National Vegetation Classification (NVC). It details the methodology for sampling and describing vegetation in the field, explains how such information can be used to identify plant communities and outlines the character of the classification itself and the accounts of vegetation types it contains. It also discusses the important issues involved in carrying out an NVC survey of a site and gives a brief indication of other applications of the scheme. This is one of a series of JNCC publications designed to aid and promote understanding and application of the NVC.

Finally, the work of Wilfried Hansen and Dr. Jürgen Synnatzschke is available as a book. So far, it was scattered in 11 separate issues of the scientific journal Beiträge zur Naturkunde Niedersachsens and only accessible to a small number of experts. In the meantime, these issues are all out of print. They have now been revised, updated with extensive new data and united into a single book. The resulting monograph treats the tail feathers (rectrices) of the birds of Central Europe. The identifying characters of the tail feathers of more than 300 bird species are described in detail and depicted on first- class black-and-white drawings. New measurement tables for the longest wing feather complete the work. The foreword by Prof. Dr. Urs N. Glutz von Blotzheim makes this historical work a real classic of ornithology. An English summary and image captions in English open this German work to an international public.Erstmals liegt das Werk von Wilfried Hansen und Dr. Jürgen Synnatzschke als Buch vor. Bisher war es auf 11 separate Hefte der wissenschaftlichen Fachzeitschrift Beiträge zur Naturkunde Niedersachsens verstreut und nur wenigen Fachleuten zugänglich. Diese Hefte sind in der Zwischenzeit alle vergriffen. Sie wurden nun als Buch zusammengefasst und mit zahlreichen neuen Daten ergänzt. Die entstandene Monographie behandelt die Steuerfedern der Vögel Mitteleuropas. Die Bestimmungsmerkmale von über 300 Vogelarten anhand der Steuerfedern werden ausführlich beschrieben und auf erstklassigen Tuschezeichnungen dargestellt. Vervollständigt wird das Werk durch neu hinzugefügte Schwungfeder-Tabellen. Durch das Vorwort von Prof. Dr. Urs N. Glutz von Blotzheim wird dieses historische Werk zu einem echten Klassiker der Ornithologie.
