Tree Kangaroos: Science and Conservation, a volume in the Biodiversity of the World: Conservation from Genes to Landscapes Series, provides an overview of tree kangaroos as a species and their relationship with humans. This exciting, interdisciplinary work on tree kangaroo science and conservation is divided into six major sections: (1) tree kangaroo evolution, genetics, taxonomy, ecology and behavior, and relationship to humans, (2) current and emerging threats to the species, (3) conservation programs in Australia and New Guinea with an emphasis on the human aspect of conservation, (4) the role of zoos in conservation solutions, (5) techniques and technologies to study this elusive marsupial, and (6) what is needed to keep tree kangaroos and their landscape healthy. The book concludes with an essay of hope by award-winning natural history author Sy Montgomery.
