  10. How Wolves Turned into Dogs and How Dogs Are Valuable in Meeting Human Social Needs

    | Contributor(s):: Kurt Kotrschal

    A wealth of recent behavioral, neurobiological, and genetic results allows us to draw a new, comprehensive picture of the human-wolf-dog relationship. Dogs originated from wolves 35,000 years ago, mainly via selection for tameness. Wolves were probably spiritual partners and hunting buddies of...

  16. Depredatory impact of free-roaming dogs (Canis lupus familiaris) on Mediterranean deer in southern Spain: implications for the human-wolf conflict.

    | Contributor(s):: J. Duarte, F.J. Garcia, JE Fa

  20. Wild-But-Not-Too-Wild Animals: Challenging Goldilocks Standards in Rewilding

    | Contributor(s):: Erica von Essen, Michael P. Allen

    Rewilding is positioned as ‘post’-conservation through its emphasis on unleashing the autonomy of natural processes. In this paper, we argue that the autonomy of nature rhetoric in rewilding is challenged by human interventions. Instead of joining critique toward the ‘managed...
