Wildlife and People
About the Book
"Provides a much needed, highly readable synthesis of the literature--experiences, insights, and research findings--of [the] human dimension of wildlife conservation. . . . Essential reading for wildlife professionals and conservation activists." -- Robert Leo Smith, Choice
"Very well written and enjoyable to read. . . . Will appeal to anyone who is intrigued by human and wildlife interactions." -- Richard W. Warner, director, Center for Wildlife Ecology, Illinois Natural History Survey
Wildlife and People focuses on the human aspect of the animal-habitat-human triad, introducing virtually every discipline involved in the human dimensions of wildlife ecology. The most fruitful approach to wildlife ecology, Gary Gray maintains, grants coequality to wild animal population biology, the ecology and management of wildlife habitats, and human aspects of wildlife ecology.
Gray examines topics ranging from aboriginal human-wildlife relationships to wildlife law, policy, and administration.
