Bozeman -- The work of Montana State University wildlife biologist Tony Clevenger is on the cover of the fourth edition of "Essentials of Conservation Biology," one of the premier textbooks on the subject. The cover features a wildlife overpass used by grizzly bears, moose, elk, deer and a host of other animals to cross the Trans-Canada Highway in Banff National Park. The book will be published in May by Sinauer Associates, Inc.

Banff's wildlife crossings are part of 10 years of groundbreaking research by Clevenger, an internationally recognized expert on road ecology. Built in 1997, the overpass is one of two overpasses and 22 underpasses in the park. Banff is home to the largest and most diverse collection of wildlife crossing structures in the world.
