Concepts in Wildlife Management

B.B. Hosetti (Author)

India is the seventh largest country and Asia's second most populous country with an area of 3, 387, 263 km-2. It possesses diverse climatic regions and habitats. Though India became independent six decades ago, still we are unable to document and manage our wildlife resources. Presently most of the literature on wildlife is available in the form of few books and monographs which are mainly related to European and African wild life. Good number of workers are involved in the study of wildlife of India, and these persons work for their specific research projects, and it is degree oriented, many time they do not visit field or they rely on secondary data or only depend on their project fellows information. Such studies will not give true picture about the ground reality, specially it is true about studies on Avifauna. Presently there are six institutes in India which offer M.Sc in wild life. Most of these students suffer from non availability of books and relevant information. Now a days study on wild life has been tagged with eco-tourism concept, which become an attractive tool to invite tourists and hence to earn income. An attempt is made in this book to provide all the important information on wildlife. In addition to those the chapters of II edition, the III edition has been revised and four new chapters are incorporated. This book is a rare source of wide information on wild resources. This title embodies 25 chapters on various aspects of wild life of India. Chapter first, begins with the knowledge on wildlife conservation and management.
