People and wildlife: conflict or coexistence? highlights that human-wildlife conflict is a major issue in conservation- - it is mainly concerned with resolving conflicts that occur between people and threatened wildlife. The book presents a variety of solutions to human-wildlife conflicts, including novel and traditional farming practices, offsetting the costs of wildlife damage through hunting and tourism, and the development of local and national policies. It evaluates the impact of human-wildlife conflict on natural systems and the importance of coexistence. You can find People and wildlife: conflict or coexistence? in HOORC's Library.
