This book aims to further advance the field of reintroduction biology beyond the considerable progress made since the formation of the IUCN/SSC Re-introduction Specialist Group. Using an issue-based framework that purposely avoids a structure based on case studies the books central theme is advocating a strategic approach to reintroduction where all actions are guided by explicit theoretical frameworks based on clearly defined objectives. Issues covered include husbandry and intensive management, monitoring, and genetic and health management. Although taxonomically neutral there is a recognised dominance of bird and mammal studies that reflects the published research in this field. The structure and content are designed for use by people wanting to bridge the research-management gap, such as conservation managers wanting to expand their thinking about reintroduction-related decisions, or researchers who seek to make useful applied contributions to reintroduction.
John Ewen is a Research Fellow at the Institute of Zoology, Zoological Society of London and is supported by a Research Councils UK Academic Fellowship. He has been involved in reintroduction since 1995 and is a member of the IUCN/SSC Reintroduction Specialist Group. Dough Armstrong is the Professor of Conservation Biology at Massey University, New Zealand, and Director of the universitys Postgraduate Programme in Conservation Biology. He has been involved in reintroduction since 1992, and has been the Oceania Chair of the IUCM/SSC Reintroduction Specialist Group since 1997. Kevin Parker is a post-doctoral fellow at Massey University, New Zealand. He has been involved in reintroduction since 1999 and is a member of the IUCN/SSC Reintroduction Specialist Group. Phil Seddon is an Associate Professor at the University of Otago, New Zealand, and Director of the universitys Postgraduate Wildlife Management Programme. He has been a member of the IUCN/SSC Re-introduction Specialist Group (RSG) since 1995, and RSG Bird Section Chair since 1998.
