Conservation behavior is defined here as studying animal behavior in order to solve wildlife conservation problems. Blumstein (ecology and evolutionary biology, U. of California-Los Angeles) and Fernandez-Juricic (biological sciences, Purdue U.) offer biologists an introduction to its concepts and practices so they can apply it to particular biological conservation and wildlife management problems. Their topics include why behavioral mechanisms matter, habitat selection for conservation and management, forage behavior, antipredator behavior, acoustic communication, demographic consequences of sociability, and using behavior to set aside areas for wildlife protection.
