A New Era for Wolves and People: Wolf Recovery, Human Attitudes, and Policy

by

A New Era for Wolves and People: Wolf Recovery, Human Attitudes, and Policy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wolves hold an almost mythical status in the cultural history of Europe and North America. For hundreds of years, they have been the subject of fairy tales and other lore, embodying mystery, cunning, and sometimes threat. People are drawn to their beauty, intrigued by their behaviours. Yet for those who live in close proximity to wolves, coexistence is fraught with many serious issues.
     Wolf management is an excellent model of human-nature interaction and the challenges that come along with it. A New Era for Wolves and People analyzes the crucial relationship between human ethics, attitudes, and policy and the management of wolf populations in Europe and North America. The contributors to this volume assert that these human dimensions affect wolf survival just as much, if not more, than the physical environment.
     Contributors include recognized scientists and other wolf experts who introduce new and sometimes controversial findings. A New Era for Wolves and People includes colour photographs by David C. Olson and drawings by wildlife artist Susan Shimeld.

Book News Annotation:

Musiani (landscape ecology, U. of Calgary, Canada) et al. bring together eight essays that consider the relationship between human ethics, attitudes, and policy and the management of reintroduced and recovering wolf populations in Europe and North America. Scientists and other wolf specialists from the regions discuss how wolf populations are rebounding from human persecution; the difficulties in managing increasing populations, including attacks on livestock; conservation patterns; how humans influence ecosystems through management initiatives and conservation plans; the ethical implications of different approaches; education; and compensation programs.
