    Default Urban Wildlife Management, 2nd Edition

    Urban Wildlife Management,
    2nd Edition

    by Clark E. Adams

    When the first edition of Urban Wildlife Management was published two years ago, it provided conservationists, ecologists, and wildlife professionals with a welcome shift in the way that interactions between humans and wildlife were viewed and managed. Instead of focusing on ways to evict or eradicate wildlife encroached on by urban development, this unique work took a holistic, ecosystems approach. Gathering information from more than five hundred academic sources and the popular media, this book educated us on the complete nature of the problem.

    See what's new in the Second Edition:

    • New information garnered from secondary data sets
    • Added contributions from an extended list of leading wildlife specialists
    • Original research conducted by the authors and their students
    • New chapters on urban soils, urban waters, and zoonotic diseases
    • More perspective essays and case studies
    • Single species profiles in each chapter that focus on management issues
    • Numerous tables examining trends by species and by region

    Through discussions of past and present approaches in the United States, the bookexplores the changing landscape of wildlife management and future approaches. Urban habitats and hazards are defined in terms of green and gray spaces. Sociopolitical issues are discussed in terms of wildlife management, stakeholder responsibilities, and legal considerations. And wildlife are viewed as adaptive inhabitants of an evolving ecosystem rather than as interlopers in a humans only world.
    The author maintains a blog exploring wildlife in our own backyard.
