The Asian elephant has had a unique cultural association with people. Unfortunately, elephants and people have also been in conflict, resulting in the decline in elephants throughout their former range in Southern Asia. This book provides an ecological analysis of elephant-human interaction and its implication for the conservation of elephants. The foraging habits of elephants and their impact on vegetation are considered, along with the interactions that occur between elephants and humans. The ecological data provide the basis for recommendations on elephant conservation and management, keeping in view the socio-economic imperatives of the Asian region. This first comprehensive account of Asian elephant ecology will be of particular interest to conservation biologists and mammalogists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
' ... a very good introduction to one of the greater symbols of the conservation movement. It provides the reader with a great deal of information to stimulate the debate.' Teaching Ecology Group Reviews
'There has been a lot of woolly stuff on elephants lately, but this is a real field science. The Asian Elephant is definitely a book to own.' Bookshelf
"This fine volume on the Asian elephant is certainly timely and thorough...This book is the most current work on this subject and is designed mainly for a professional audience. However, general readers with a strong interest in elephants will be able to use this as a resource." Choice
"This must surely become the standard reference book for the Asian elephant. It provides a wealth of relevant information that will be important to all who have to deal with humans and elephants." Quarterly Review of Biology
"...has a great deal of interesting information about Asian elephant natural history which is not available elsewhere: for example, wild diet, reproductive rates and home range sizes. The recommendations for conservation strategies are well thought out and include discussions of current strategies for habitat preservation used in Africa. The bibliography is excellent. I recommend this book as a resource volume to anyone interested in wild Asian elephant conservation issues. The factual information about animal natural history is also informative, particularly as a comparison to African elephants." John Lehnhardt, Animal Keepers' Forum
