About this book

Wildlife professionals can more effectively manage species and social-ecological systems by considering the role of humans. Human Dimensions of Wildlife Management provides the essential information that students and practitioners need to be effective. Edited by three experts in wildlife management, this textbook explores the interface of humans with wildlife, and their sometimes complementary, often conflicting interests.

The book's well-researched chapters address conservation, wildlife use (hunting and fishing), and the psychological and philosophical underpinnings of wildlife management. Human Dimensions of Wildlife Management explains how a wildlife professional should handle a variety of situations, such as managing deer populations in residential areas or encounters between predators and people or pets.

This revised and updated edition includes lessons on:
- systems thinking
- working with social scientists
- managing citizen input
- using economics to inform decision making
- preparing questionnaires
- ethical considerations
