"This book will be useful, not only for Australian readers but also for people across the world who are interested in the application of practices of woodland conservation and management."
Juan Agustin Alvarez, Biological Conservation, Vol. 144 (2011), p.1776
"Temperate Woodland Conservation and Management is an excellent book, primarily because it offers the unique insights of a large number of patently committed and passionate ecologists, restorationists, conservationists, natural resource managers and policy makers.
I would recommend this book highly. It is bound to be of great value to a large and diverse group of people interested in the plight of this landscape. It offers both theoretical and practical insights, but perhaps most admirably, draws a metaphorical ‘line in the sand’ and points the way to a much brighter future."
Paul Gibson-Roy, Australasian Plant Conservation, Vol 19, No. 3, December 2010 - February 2011
