In the near future, wildlife management in urban landscapes will be a prominent issue for wildlife professionals

In the near future, wildlife management in urban landscapes will be a prominent issue for wildlife professionals. The book examines a range of topics on human interactions with wildlife in urbanized environments.

Urban Wildlife Management book.

Urban wildlife is wildlife that can live or thrive in urban environments. Some urban wildlife, such as house mice, are synanthropic, ecologically associated with humans. Some species or populations may become entirely dependent on humans. For instance, the range of many synanthropic species is expanded to latitudes at which they could not survive the winter outside of human settlements.

Urban development and habitat fragmentation threaten recovery and management of the endangered Florida Key deer (Odocoileus virginianus clavium). How we measure 'reads'. Urban development has reduced deer dispersal from their core habitat resulting in deer overabundance and has increased deer-human interactions (mostly deer-vehicle collisions ).

Summing Up: Essential.

A CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title

While much has been written about the factors that either promote or prevent proliferation of wildlife in urban settings, forward-thinking professors instructing in this area have had to rely on their own ability to collect information from the published literature. Even then, it has been a challenge to find research that examines the entire picture of human-wildlife interaction, beyond those that focus on problems associated with nuisance urban wildlife.

Urban Wildlife Management is the first comprehensive text to examine the issues that have led to the need for human-wildlife interface management strategies. The book focuses not only on ecological matters, but also incorporates the political, economic, and societal issues relevant to the development of proactive management planning. Synthesizing hundreds of journal articles, as well as countless other sources on urban wildlife management, the book organizes a wealth of material under five subject areas: urban landscapes, urban ecosystems, urban habitats and hazards, sociopolitical issues, and special management considerations.

Urban Wildlife Management educates students in the fundamental principles of ecology required to understand how human-made environments lead to the need for urban wildlife management

Exploring the changing landscape of wildlife management, the authors offer students a historical perspective, along with a look at current trends and future directions of wildlife management. They include selected lessons in ecology relevant to understanding the presence or absence of wildlife species in urban communities. These lessons look at the impacts of urbanization on ecosystem structure and function, including waterways, predation, and population dynamics. Urban habitats are discussed in terms of the unique features of green and gray spaces, urban streams, and urban soils. The book also considers both endangered species and overabundant wildlife populations.
