Wildlife management is a very interesting subject and a very few books are available in this topic, some dealing with specific aspect while others are generic. Most of the books available are dealing with specific areas of wildlife management as per the expertise of the author and it is often found that these books do not cover the expanse of knowledge and science of what wildlife management is. While writing this book, the vastness of the topic with which wildlife management deals with in the current scenario has been duly kept in mind. We see the complexity of the problems, the enormity of the threat to wildlife, the intricacies of the techniques of management, the possibilities of applications with the advancement in technology. All these and many things put together make for a good reason to write a book from which everyone would be able to benefit from a single work. This book is a comprehensive work covering all aspects of Wildlife Management touching from topics like bio-diversity to Wildlife Ecology, from census to statistical concepts, from eco-tourism to legislation andpolicies and many more. Hence it is put into two volumes. In the first part, Biodiversity Conservation, Wild Life Values, Wildlife and its Management, Habitat Management, Population Management, Wild Life Ecology, Forest Fire, Biological Attributes and Habitat Requirement of important Animal Species, Capture, Restraint and Bio-Telemetry, Tracking of Animals based on Signs & Symptoms, Management of Wildlife Habitat and Conservation Projects, Organisations Involved in Wild Life Conservation and related Forest Laws have been dealt with. In the second part, the topics tackled are Policies Concerning Wildlife Management, Wildlife Protection Act, CITES in India, Investigation and trial regarding Wildlife Crime, Basic Principles and Uses of GPS, Statistical Concepts, Census, Wild Life Crime, Wild Life Diseases, Zoo Management, Man Animal Conflict, Eco Tourism, Eco Development, Recent Advances in Wildlife Management including Relocation of Tigers in Sariska (Rajasthan), Supreme Court Judgement regarding relocation of Lions, Conservation Breeding Programme of Snow Leopard in Tripura and Sangai Recovery Programme in Manipur. Lastly, a chapter on Future Path for Wildlife Conservation has also been included. The book has been written in a manner that is simple and easy to understand where a balance between theory and practical inputs has been struck. While, there is no dearth of scientific base of management covered, the application part of the science involved has also been duly given importance. I am confident that this book will be of help to all those who are in any way related to wildlife and its management, especially to wildlife managers and students of wildlife management.
