I just discovered this amazing free download of the conservation biology textbook, Conservation Biology for All, edited by Navjot S. Sodhi and Paul R. Ehrlich (Department of Biology, Stanford University) and published by Oxford University Press.
Conservation Biology for All was made available for free download in celebration of the International Year of Biodiversity in 2010 and is offered at Mongabay.com, an environmental and conservation news site. The book is 358 pages in all and covers a wide variety of conservation biology topics including biodiversity, ecosystems, habitat destruction and fragementation, invasive species, fire and biodiversity and the roles of people in conservation.
Check it out and download it here.
