A Clouded Leopard in the Middle of the RoadA Clouded Leopard in the Middle of the Road

New Thinking about Roads, People, and Wildlife

Darryl Jones

Narrated by Simon Barber

Available from Audible


Book published by Cornell University Press


A Clouded Leopard in the Middle of the Road is an eye-opening introduction to the ecological impacts of roads. Drawing on over ten years of active engagement in the field of road ecology, Darryl Jones sheds light on the challenges roads pose to wildlife—and the solutions taken to address them.

One of the most ubiquitous indicators of human activity, roads typically promise development and prosperity. Yet they carry with them the threat of disruption to both human and animal lives. Jones surveys the myriad, innovative ways stakeholders across the world have sought to reduce animal-vehicle collisions and minimize road-crossing risks for wildlife, including efforts undertaken at the famed fauna overpasses of Banff National Park, the Singapore Eco-Link, "tunnels of love" in the Australian Alps, and others. Along the way, he acquaints readers with concepts and research in road ecology, describing the field's origins and future directions. Engaging and accessible, A Clouded Leopard in the Middle of the Road brings to the foreground an often-overlooked facet of humanity's footprint on earth.

REVIEWS:

“Road ecology is an urgent yet often overlooked topic in anthropogenic threats to the environment. Jones's book is a bold, necessary attempt to create public awareness around the dangers roads pose to wildlife. A timely, accessible, and eye-opening read.”

—Kevin J. Gaston, University of Exeter

“Road ecologists are doing some of the most innovative work in conservation today, and Jones describes their efforts with clarity, nuance, and humor. A Clouded Leopard in the Middle of the Road is a genuinely heartening book.”

—Michelle Nijhuis, author of Beloved Beasts
