An Introduction to Primate Conservation

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses some of the underlying theoretical and practical issues of managing threatened species in multifunctional landscapes, including the as yet unanswered question over whether conservation resources should be concentrated in a few well-protected areas or spread more thinly across broader landscapes, that is, the ‘new conservation’ debate. The chapter clarifies that, if positive progress is sought in conservation practice, theoretical notions in conservation biology need to be carefully weighed against their practical feasibility. This feasibility is often determined by how different strategies benefit different stakeholders. Conservation in multifunctional landscapes therefore involves assessment of tradeoffs among multiple objectives (e.g. environmental, social, economic benefits), and finding optimal solutions requires a clear understanding of why certain strategies are implemented, for whom or what, and what outcomes are sought.
