About this book

Yellowstone Cougars examines the effect of wolf restoration on the cougar population in Yellowstone National Park – one of the largest national parks in the American West. No other study has ever specifically addressed the theoretical and practical aspects of competition between large carnivores in North America. The authors provide a thorough analysis of cougar ecology, how they interact with and are influenced by wolves – their main competitor – and how this knowledge informs management and conservation of both species across the West.

Of practical importance, Yellowstone Cougars addresses the management and conservation of multiple carnivores in increasingly human-dominated landscapes. The authors move beyond a single-species approach to cougar management and conservation to one that considers multiple species, which was impossible to untangle before wolf reestablishment in the Yellowstone area provided biologists with this research opportunity.

Yellowstone Cougars provides objective scientific data at the forefront of understanding cougars and large carnivore community structure and management issues in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, as well as in other areas where wolves and cougars are reestablishing. Intended for an audience of scientists, wildlife managers, conservationists, and academics, the book also sets a theoretical precedent for writing about competition between carnivorous mammals.

Media reviews

"This is a truly heroic study, involving a tremendous amount of fieldwork over many years. It deserves wide attention."
– David Armstrong, University of Colorado Boulder

"This book will serve as a reference guide and how-to working manual for the future of these animals for decades to come. There is no compilation of work on cougars like this in the world, no compilation that spans a top-level carnivore restoration, no compilation that elucidates such a difficult species to work with."
– Jim Halfpenny, president, A Naturalist's World
