How conservation scientists work

Grace, Marcus and Hare, Tony (2008) How conservation scientists work School Science Review, 90, (330), pp. 47-52.

Record type: Article


Being a conservation scientist is not easy. Some may regard it as a ‘soft’ science, and yet it necessarily draws on many other fields of cutting-edge science, such as genetics, ecology, climatology, and behavioural and reproductive science. But these scientists also find themselves working under a wide range of political, socio-economic, and cultural pressures. They often need to make tough, rapid decisions and therefore tread a difficult path between science and society.
