FORTHCOMING
Ce livre, publié par Open Book Publishers, est disponible gratuitement au format PDF. La décision des auteurs de rendre ce livre en libre accès est remarquable, d’autant plus que cela permet d’attribuer à l’ouvrage une importance majeure dans le domaine de la conservation et de la biodiversité en Afrique et par les africains. Je recommande ce manuel aux étudiants africains, au personnel chargé de la conservation, aux responsables politiques et à toute personne intéressée par la conservation de la nature. La distribution gratuite assure un large lectorat parmi les universitaires, chercheurs et autres professionnels africains de l'environnement. Ce volume offre une rare opportunité d'accès à la recherche sur la biodiversité en Afrique, et les informations fournies peuvent être utilisées non seulement pour améliorer la collaboration intra-africaine en matière de recherche mais également pour renforcer les capacités locales et régionales en matière de recherche sur le continent. Cet ouvrage est actuellement la publication la plus complète sur la conservation en Afrique. Il constitue un point de référence pour les spécialistes de l'environnement, les biologistes de la faune et vie sauvage, les conservateurs et les responsables politiques qui travaillent sur l'environnement ainsi que sur la faune et vie sauvage en Afrique ; il est appelé à devenir un classique.
