Influenced by theories and concepts found in environmental criminology, the field of crime science has proven to be a unique and useful approach in understanding and preventing crime. This book applies these principles and techniques to the study, analysis, and prevention of wildlife crime. With this book, William Moreto and Stephen Pires present the first complete book addressing wildlife crime from an environmental criminology and crime science perspective.
Divided into three main sections, readers will be provided with an in-depth overview of wildlife crime, the theoretical foundations of environmental criminology and crime science, and practical concepts and tools that can be used to analyze and prevent wildlife crimes around the world.
