Abstract:
"An instant bestseller and winner of major awards, Urban Wildlife Management is the first comprehensive text to examine the issues that have led to the need for human-wildlife interface management strategies. Now fully expanded and revised, this second edition features a new chapter on zoonotic diseases and another on economic issues. It also includes an expanded section on urban soils as well as a deepened assessment of urban aquatic systems. As with the original, this edition is grounded in the fundamental principles of ecology as they relate to human-dominated landscapes, incorporating political, economic, and societal issues relevant to the development of proactive management planning."--pub. desc.
