Nature conservation in the 21st century has taken a radical new turn.  Instead of conserving particular species in nature reserves as 'museum  pieces', frozen in time, the thinking now is that we should allow  landscape-sized areas to 'rewild' according to their own self-determined  processes. By fencing off large areas and introducing large herbivores,  along with apex predators such as wolves, dynamic new habitats are  already being created.

These 'self-willed' areas will develop in  ways that cannot always be predicted, and they may not conform to our  traditional ideas of wildlife habitats, but they will form a robust and  rich ecology which will be strong enough to withstand future climate  changes and species shifts.

In this highly topical book, the  first popular account of rewilding, practising ecologists Paul Jepson  and Cain Blythe explore the ongoing scientific discoveries that are  emerging from this fascinating field.
