About this book

... a thought-provoking book about a topic that is increasingly important. It will be very useful for conservationists, landowners, hunters, wildlife watchers, biologists, land managers, and policy-makers who must face the thorny issues of individual versus collective rights. - The Quarterly Review of Biology"

In the United States, two-thirds of lands are private, and 85 percent of all wildlife is found on these private lands. Who is responsible for wildlife found on private lands - the government, who has the authority to manage wildlife on behalf of all citizens, or the landowners? How can governments carry out their management mission without encroaching on the property rights of landowners? How can landowners be encouraged to manage and preserve wildlife? The authors attempt to answer these questions, examining ways that public and private sectors can work together considering ways governments and landowners can be good stewards of the public's wildlife using recreation, tax advantages, and cost shares as incentives.
