Short Description

The complex problem of threatened species and ecosystems throughout the world will require an interdisciplinary solution. This paper proposes interdisciplinary problem-solving as a skill that can be taught and applied. For the purpose of conservation, the paper discusses the policy or management process of interdisciplinary problem-solving using a case study on the Yellowstone grizzly bear as an example of applying this approach.
