This chapter first explains why scientific evidence plays a key role in conservation and management. It then discusses how scientific evidence should be used in decision making and how to handle lack of evidence. It presents examples of wise management involving the island fox (Urocyon littoralis) in Southern California's Channel Islands, the mallard ducks (Anas platyrhynchos) in North America, and the hihi (Notiomystis cincta) in New Zealand.

Keywords:   scientific evidence, conservation, adaptive management, island fox, mallard ducks, hihi
