  In an interview with Yale Environment , Peters — author of the recently published book, Managing the Wild: Stories of People and Plants and Tropical Forests — discusses what he has learned from 35 years of working with indigenous forest communities; explains how indigenous farming, even slash-and-burn agriculture, can actually improve. The Ecology, Biodiversity, and Conservation series presents balanced, comprehensive, up-to-date, and critical reviews of selected topics within the sciences of ecology and conservation biology, both botanical and zoological, and both 'pure' and 'applied'.

Conservation definition, the act of conserving; prevention of injury, decay, waste, or loss; preservation: conservation of wildlife; conservation of human rights. See. The temperate forests of Russia, North America, Chile and Europe help absorb the gases that cause climate change, give us timber and paper products, and provide jobs for many people.

They’re also a home for many species, from trees and flowers, to birds and butterflies, wolves and bears. But huge areas of temperate forest have been destroyed. The use of domestic ungulates as tools in landscape management and nature conservation is discussed and the role of public attitude in implementation of landscape management and nature conservation is addressed.

One is the preservation of both species and species diversity, the other is based on animal welfare, which is primarily aimed at wildlife in captivity ().Conservation education is an important component of environmental education, and is aimed at expanding human awareness of conservation biodiversity and at changing environmental.

Biological conservation management applies ecological evidence and practical experience to formulate and implement actions to maintain or attain a specific ecological objective, which is agreed upon by consensus and/or prescribed by legislation. On a global scale the concept of Earth being a single system is easy to comprehend.

Peterken describes how woodlands grow, die, and regenerate in the absence of human influence, and the structures and range of habitats found in natural woods.

He describes examples of virgin and old-growth forests.
