"Conservation biology has emerged over the past twenty-five years as an important new subdiscipline, central to the management of the natural world and its nonvoting species. Tim Caro's comprehensive review examines the successes and shortcomings of difference scientific, economic, and aesthetic approaches to protecting endangered species and their habitats. Conservation by Proxy uses an elegant blend of quantitative comparisons and insightful examples to illustrate what has worked and what has failed. It is essential reading for anyone concerned with the conservation of biodiversity in the critical next few decades."
