The author deftly employs this vast literature in well-developed examples in the text, tables, and figures. ... "Conservation by Proxy "offers an invaluable contribution to the literature of conservation biology. I highly recommend it for academics or students involved with surrogates, as well as anyone grappling with biodiversity conservation or quantifying effects of environmental change. Caro offers not only a timely, thorough journey through the realm of surrogates, but also an effective and less costly alternative to these proxies."--Mary M. Rowland, USDA Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station "Ecology "Rezension:
"Surrogate species have been a holy grail for establishing conservation targets and measureing success. "Conservation by Proxy" distinguishes precise definitions from buzzwords, which is essential for credible application of concepts to practice. Compelling examples are drawn from virtually every ecosystem and level of biological organization. This impressive synthesis will promote both honesty about the inferences surrogates can provide and consideration of alternative metrics for assessing environmental status and trends."--Erica Fleishman "Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, UC Santa Barbara "
