Summary
Change is a dynamic force that is continuously influencing faunal diversity in forests around the world. Therefore, strategies to conserve forest species and habitats are needed in many parts of the world today to integrate predictions of change. This book serves to coalesce the knowledge of conservation scientists with regard to the current influence of environmental change on forest fauna. Forest wildlife conservation is urgently required in many parts of the world today. This book focuses on changing forests worldwide. It highlights the status of the key vertebrates inhabiting these forests and the past and current effects that environmental change exerts on these vertebrate populations. The evidence of changes in forests and forest fauna are presented and issues that are most critical to the conservation of these forested ecosystems are proposed
