Managing interacting endangered species

Managing interacting endangered species

Chadès, I., Curtis, J. M. R. and Martin, T. G. (2012), Setting Realistic Recovery Targets for Two Interacting Endangered Species, Sea Otter and Northern Abalone. Conservation Biology. doi: 10.1111/j.1523-1739.2012.01951.x PDF
