About the book

An endangered species is a species that is very likely to become extinct in the near future, either worldwide or in a particular country or region. There are lots of biotic & abiotic factors including anthropogenic activities behind the category "Endangered". IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) do the assessment with other regional/ national or international organizations. Their conservation is very important where the whole world is facing the impacts of climate change & anthropogenic activities. There are several Biological Acts for the conservation of such species throughout the world but the most important need is community programs and awareness.

The book will bring attention to the Endangered species worldwide. It will provide the status worldwide and how to conserve them. What are the steps needed to conserve them will be discussed including how to reintroduce such species again in the wild to maintain the ecological balance. The significance will be discussed and will provide their values for human beings.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
