Mammals are arguably the most successful group of vertebrates on Earth, ranging from the depths of the oceans, to the morth and south poles, and the skies above. Despite their success, modern stressors have radically changed mammal communities around the world—while some species have greatly expanded their ranges, others have disappeared among a raft of extinctions. In a world that is experiencing unprecedented environmental change, including the confluence of multiple threats, such as habitat loss and modification, climate change, and biological invasion, integrated and multifaceted approaches are urgently required for ecologically and cost effective management of novel mammal communities. Using case examples from around the world, here we review innovative and emerging field-based and modelling approaches and tools, and ecological and evolutionary perspectives, for meeting this challenge.

At a time when the IUCN has identified that 25% of mammal species are at risk, the need for continued global mammal research and management strengthens. Addressing this need requires a strong inter-disciplinary knowledge base.
The International Mammalogical Congress is the premier international mammal conference, sponsored every four years by the IFM. It provides an important forum for professional mammalogists wishing to remain Wallabyupdated on the latest marine and terrestrial mammal conservation topics, research concepts and techniques. IMC12 will bring together the diverse global community of professionals and students in the field of mammalian biology and facilitate collaboration through our international network of practitioners.
