The latest edition of this classic guide details how to understand and resolve a broad array of human-wildlife conflicts.

This new edition of Human-Wildlife Conflict Management updates our understanding of the human dimensions, as well as biological and ecological concepts, underlying human-wildlife conflicts. While it provides wildlife professionals and students with the knowledge and adaptive management strategies to resolve such conflicts, it uniquely explores negative interactions with a wide range of wildlife taxa beyond those typically covered in traditional wildlife damage management, including invasive plants, invertebrates, and fish.

Designed to help students and natural resource practitioners gain a deeper understanding of how to successfully avoid and resolve conflict between humans and wildlife, it is informed by author Russell F. Reidinger's decades of teaching students and professionals how to anticipate and manage human-wildlife conflicts, as well as his experience leading a national research program devoted to this work.

The book covers important human-wildlife topics such as:

• individual-, population-, and ecosystem-level effects
• survey techniques
• management methods
• human dimensions
• economic issues
• legal and political aspects
• damage management strategies

Featuring explanations of important terminology and pertinent biological and ecological concepts, Reidinger also shares the latest research, provides a plethora of real-world examples, and includes suggestions for additional resources.

Reviews

If you want a bird's-eye view of a complex subject from an academically rigorous point of view, then this book is for you. Teachers of wildlife damage management especially should consider using this text for their classes.

This book is a significant contribution to the wildlife management and conservation literature... This book will be a solid foundation for a course on this important discipline... The well-written, comprehensive text, numerous illustrations, tables and boxes, summaries, and end-of-chapter questions make a professor's job easy. Highly recommended.
