    Anchorage, Alaska, has 301,000 human residents and hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Anchorage also supports a viable population of brown bears (Ursus arctos). As a result, human–bear encounters are common. We used camera traps to monitor recreational trails near salmon...

  3. The effect of dolphin-assisted therapy on the cognitive and social development of children with Down syndrome

    | Contributor(s):: Griffioen, R. E., Enders-Slegers, M. J.

In Tanzania and Kenya much of this work employs a human-wildlife conflict perspective and is based in Maasai areas, where many of...
