[This book] definitely can provide ideas to scientists and conservationists in tropical and subtropical areas, where intensive agriculture practices are rapidly destroying natural areas, who wish to convince farmers of the long-term advantages of sustainable farming and biodiversity-friendly practices. * Gabor Pozsgai, Conservation Biology * This book should be of interest and value to anyone interested in wildlife conflict, particularly in the context of lowland farmland in Britain. * Mark Wilson, BTO * The research is compelling ... due to the clear writing style and plethora of case-studies, both volumes will be useful in the classroom, as well. Wildlife Conservation on Farmland is a must read * Samantha Noll, Biological Conservation *
