About this book

Human-wildlife interactions increase exponentially as more and more humans and wildlife crowd into the same limited space. Such interactions often become conflicts when wildlife threaten human health and safety, well-being, or the food supply. This second edition of Human-Wildlife Interactions: From Conflict to Cooperation provides a comprehensive review of the severity of these problems and the methods used to resolve clashes between humans and wildlife.

During his forty-year career as a wildlife professor and scientist, Dr Michael Conover, founder of the journal Human-Wildlife Interactions, has become a recognized leader of the scientific field of human-wildlife interactions. In this book, he presents the range of methods for wildlife damage management, including employing lethal methods; distributing supplemental food; changing the behaviour of either humans or wildlife; and excluding or repelling wildlife. Backed by numerous case studies and informative sidebars, the book documents resolutions to specific human-wildlife conflicts throughout the literature.

Containing full-colour illustrations throughout, the second edition of Human-Wildlife Interactions: From Conflict to Cooperation provides authoritative coverage and depth of both theoretical and practical information. It serves as an invaluable resource for students, researchers, and professional wildlife managers.
