Understanding Conflicts about Wildlife : A Biosocial Approach Hardback
Edited by Catherine M. Hill, Amanda D. Webber, Nancy E. C. Priston
Part of the Studies of the Biosocial Society series
Conflicts about wildlife are usually portrayed and understood as resulting from the negative impacts of wildlife on human livelihoods or property.
However, a greater depth of analysis reveals that many instances of human-wildlife conflict are often better understood as people-people conflict, wherein there is a clash of values between different human groups.
Understanding Conflicts About Wildlife unites academics and practitioners from across the globe to develop a holistic view of these interactions.
It considers the political and social dimensions of 'human-wildlife conflicts' alongside effective methodological approaches, and will be of value to academics, conservationists and policy makers.
