Review of Wildlife Damage Management: Prevention, Problem Solving and Conflict Resolution
Contributor(s):: Travis L. Devault
Wildlife damage management (WDM) is more challenging than it might seem to the uninitiated. As any reader of Human–Wildlife Interactions knows, there is much more to WDM than trapping nuisance raccoons from attics and applying chemicals to ward off deer from ornamental plants. Although...

Survival, fecundity, and movements of free-roaming cats
Contributor(s):: Schmidt, P. M., Lopez, R. R., Collier, B. A.
Free-roaming cats (e.g., owned, semi-feral, and feral) impact wildlife worldwide through predation, competition, and disease transmission. Baseline ecological information necessary for population management is lacking. We radiocollared free-roaming cats (feral, n=30; semi-feral, n=14; owned,...
Sustainability of natural populations: Lessons from indigenous knowledge
Contributor(s):: Pierotti, Raymond
Management schemes for wildlife are often unsuccessful in maintaining healthy, sustainable populations, especially approaches based on Maximum Sustainable Yield, which fail to account for variation in reproductive output. North American Indigenous hunters had considerable knowledge about the...

The effects of gestagen implants on the behaviour of free-ranging female koalas
Contributor(s):: Hynes, Emily F., Handasyde, Kathrine A., Shaw, Geoff, Renfree, Marilyn B.
Hormonal contraception is an increasingly important management tool for control of highly abundant populations of wildlife but may have both predictable and unpredictable effects on behaviour, with consequent implications for management and animal welfare. In a study of free-ranging koalas we...
The effects of radar on avian behavior: implications for wildlife management at airports
Contributor(s):: Sheridan, E., Randolet, J., DeVault, T. L., Seamans, T. W., Blackwell, B. F., Fernandez-Juricic, E.
Airports often contain foraging, breeding, and roosting resources for wildlife. Airports also have different types of radars to assist with air traffic control, monitoring weather, and tracking wildlife that could become a risk for collision with aircraft. The effect of radar electromagnetic...
