Wildlife Conservation Science & Policy

Dedicated to the social and political aspects–the so-called "human dimensions"–of wildlife management


Dear readers,

I understand that even in today’s information-rich society, some articles and reports can be hard to come by.  Moreover, I understand that many people do not have access to the journals where academics most often publish.  I am just getting started with this page, but I have put it up with the intention of posting links to all of my publications (where copyright permits) in one location.

Thanks for your interest!

    Im not to sure how this re-introduction of endangered species is going to work in the end. We want wolves, but there come s time when population is stable and then we have to watch them being shot and massacred. And thats real ugly. We competent with the hunters to increase the wolf population and in the end the elk, deer, cougar, and coyotes might suffer because the pressure on game from the hunters and wolves may be extremely high. Just a thought.
