Anna Sher (Biological Sciences) co-authors conservation biology textbook (June 1, 2016)
Anna Sher is co-author of the newly-released "An Introduction to Conservation Biology," first edition, published in April 2016 by Sinauer Associates Press. She joined Richard Primack in authoring this new textbook that combines the readability of Primack's "A Primer of Conservation Biology" with the depth and coverage of his larger textbook, "Essentials of Conservation Biology." The text, which will replace both of these best-selling series, is suited for a wide range of undergraduate courses, as both a primary text for conservation biology courses and as a supplement for ecological and environmental science courses. For the new book, Anna added hundreds of new examples, citations, and figures, balancing foundational literature with the most current scientific findings and technologies for data collection.
