This special issue presents a number of detailed case studies of human environment interactions during a significant historical period. With social-ecological systems, or a set of people, their natural and human-made resources, and the relationships among them (Anderies et al., 2004, Janssen et al., 2005).
This study finds 58% fewer wildlife mortalities from wildlife-vehicle collisions where underpasses and fencing are along highways, and provides additional insight for continuous fencing along highways.
Human–wildlife conflicts like wildlife–vehicle collisions pose major challenges for the management and conservation of mobile wildlife in human-dominated landscapes, particularly when large species are involved.
Unglulates (hoofed mammals) and vehicle collisions are serious challenges for conservation management of various large species throughout the world. This report explores how sensitive statistical database are to how frequently or consistently these collisions are reported.
Human-wildlife interactions such as injuries and wildlife disease outbreaks can be economically, socially, medically, and environmentally costly.
Human-wildlife interactions can create obstacles for wildlife conservation efforts.
There are multiple studies that prove how nature positively affects human health and well-being. In this broadcast we'll hear about these studies.
Susan Burks, from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, joins us to discuss her work to prevent the spread of invasive species through a program called PlayCleanGo: Stop Invasive Species in Your Tracks.
Where high-traffic roads are situated near wildlife habit, there are significant safety and conservation concerns. Improvements to these areas depend on the quality of Wildlife-vehicle collision data collection.
