This PAS Report offers a holistic planning framework helping planners guide land-use decisions to create communities that are safer and more resilient to wildfire.

Research focuses on several key areas: (1) measuring species diversity, abundance, and behavior in urban areas, (2) understanding the effects of development and habitat fragmentation on species populations, (3) improving wildlife habitat in human-dominated landscapes, and (4) examining human perceptions of urban wildlife habitat and stewardship.

The book makes important contributions to wildlife conservation of animals in several ways: (1) it highlights historical and contemporary advancements in the development of wildlife habitat models and their implementation in conservation planning; (2) it provides practical advice for the ecologist conducting such studies; and (3) it supplies.
