About this book


This book is the first comprehensive account of the economic and socioeconomic importance of consumptive and non-consumptive use of wild animals around the world. It endeavours to treat this highly emotional subject objectively and scientifically with consideration of the importance of conservation and sustainable multiple use of natural resources for the best long-term benefit of man. Apart from up-to-date information on the different reptile, bird and mammal groups the book describes the background and principles that should govern wildlife utilization under varying ecological and sociological circumstances. It also discusses the processing and marketing of some of the more important wildlife products.
The book is a most important source of information for any professionals concerned with wildlife management and those interested in wildlife conservation.
