This book brings together leading conservation practitioners to reflect on their response to the current global biodiversity crisis, through the lens of island species recovery and management. Initial chapters cover the biological understanding of small population biology and the growing threat of invasive species, while subsequent chapters discuss the management of these threats and the complexity of leading projects within a dynamic and still relatively unknown system. Multiple case studies from islands worldwide illustrate key points, allowing readers to draw on the first-hand practical experience of experienced professionals. This resource will be invaluable to both current and future conservation professionals, helping them to go beyond disciplinary 'comfort zones' and develop, manage and lead projects over extensive timeframes in a way that brings others with them on the journey.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Islands are special. From Darwin and Wallace through to Gerald Durrell and the editors of this volume, life on islands has fascinated and troubled biologists in equal measure. In Species Conservation: Lessons from Islands an eminent group of conservationists bring their considerable experience to bear on the full gamut of problems facing those working to conserve insular species. From outlining the peculiarities and complexities of island life through to planning, managing and monitoring for recovery, the editors and authors present a compendium of strategies and practices for all those involved in the conservation of species in these special places. We have learnt much from the study of life on islands. The guidance in this very practical volume will help ensure that the many endemic and other species characteristic of the world's islands will survive to fascinate future generations.' Martin Fisher, Editor-in-Chief of Oryx: The International Journal of Conservation
