ISBN: 978-1-4443-6156-8
Hardcover, 528 pages

The formation of the IUCN/SSC Re-introduction Specialist Group was a milestone in conservation. Lot of advance has been made in the filed of reintroduction with the advent of the group. This book aims to further advance the field of reintroduction biology.

 The book advocates a strategic approach to reintroduction where all actions are guided by explicit theoretical frameworks based on clearly defined objectives. It covers topics like husbandry and intensive management, monitoring, and genetic and health management. 

 People wanting to bridge the research-management gap will find the book highly useful. The book is unreservedly recommended for Wildlife managers wanting to expand their thinking about reintroduction-related decisions and researchers aspiring to make useful applied contributions to reintroduction.
