"In summary, this book provides readers with a strong general understanding of numerical approaches that are commonly used to explore vertebrate conservation problems in a clear and straightforward manner. The accompanying CDROM presents ready access to all the worked examples in the volume, providing good templates for teaching aids; there is also a regularly updated be thrown in the rucksack of even the most adventurous field researcher". (The Quarterly Review of Biology, 1 December 2010)

"Overall, this would be a plausible book for an upper-division course in which students would learn, rather painlessly, the necessary combination of observation and mathematics necessary to make important conservation decisions." (CHOICE, December 2009)
