As in past installments of The in Ecology and Conservation Biology series, this year’s volume contains a compilation of scholarly reviews in conservation biology and scientific, policy, and management implications. The collection this year includes reviews of The Marine Mammal Protection Act at 40: status, recovery, and future of U.S. marine mammals; the translocation of imperiled species under changing climates; the ecology and conservation of ginseng in a changing world; the risks to biodiversity from hydraulic fracturing; species–area relationships and extinction forecasts; and a framework, Bounded Ranges of Variation (BRV), for future conservation and fire management.
