A recently published book by Cambridge Press, Nature Conservation in Europe edited by Graham Tucker, provides a comprehensive overview of the status of Europe’s nature, relevant threats and pressures. It also analyses the impact of human activities on ecosystems, and gives a snapshot of international and EU biodiversity policies and legislative framework.
The book offers a comparison of conservation efforts and challenges through the assessments of twenty-five EU Member States and the UK compiled by national experts.
Chapters include description and critical assessment of conservation measures, results and pitfalls with valuable lessons learnt for the way forward for nature conservation in Europe.
Our expert, Agnes Zolyomi was part of the book’s Advisory Board among with other conservation experts of the EU and the UK that contributed to the formulation of this complex and thorough piece.
