About this book

Ungulate Management in Europe considers a number of problems posed by ungulates and their management in Europe. Through a synthesis of the underlying biology and a comparison of the management techniques adopted in different countries, Ungulate Management in Europe explores which management approaches seem effective – and in which circumstances. Experts in a number of different areas of applied wildlife biology review various management problems and alternative solutions, including the impact of large ungulates on agriculture, forestry and conservation habitats, the impact of disease and predation on ungulate populations and the involvement of ungulates in road traffic accidents and possible measures for mitigation. Ungulate Management in Europe is directed at practising wildlife managers, those involved in research to improve methods of wildlife management, and policy-makers in local, regional and national administrations.

"This book is particularly interesting for those involved in research to improve methods of wildlife management."
- Mammalia

Biography

Rory Putman worked for many years within the Biology Department of the University of Southampton, where he established and led the University's highly-regarded Deer Management Research group; latterly he moved to become Research Professor of Behavioural and Environmental Biology at the Manchester Metropolitan University. He now works as a freelance environmental consultant and wildlife adviser based in Scotland. He has worked widely in the UK and overseas, with research efforts focused on the population ecology of ungulates and their interaction with their vegetational environment – always with the explicit focus of helping to develop more sensitive and more effective methods of managing those same ungulate populations and their impacts on agriculture, forestry or conservation interests.

Marco Apollonio is Full Professor at the University of Sassari, where he is presently Director of the Department of Zoology and of the Ph.D. school in Natural Science. His main interests are in ungulate behaviour, ecology and genetics, with a specific focus on mating and social behaviour and on predator-prey relationships involving wolves and ungulates. He is Past-President of the Italian Mammalogical Society and was involved in conservation activities as CITES Scientific Commission Member for Italy and as a member of the board of directors of two national parks in the last 15 years.

Reidar Andersen worked for many years in the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research. In 2005 he became Professor in Conservation Biology at the Museum of Natural History and Archaeology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. He has been leading several cross-disciplinary research projects focusing on ungulates and large carnivores, always aiming to produce applied knowledge, securing sustainable management of the species involved. Since 2009 he has become part of the Directorate team at the Norwegian Directorate for Nature Conservation.
