Habitat Management for Conservation

Malcolm Ausden

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the various philosophical approaches to habitat management. The fundamental differences between approaches concerns how management aims to create and maintain cultural habitats that existed under more natural conditions, and the level of human intervention and control. Habitat management may involve very specific actions aimed primarily at benefiting just one or a small suite of species, or it may involve introducing key natural processes with little further intervention and expectation of the outcome. Approaches to habitat management also depend on the extent to which conservation is integrated with other interests, such as recreation, wider resource use, and provision of other ecological services.
