Description

Wildlife and People focuses on the human aspect of the animal-habitat-human triad, providing an introduction to virtually every discipline - from anthropology and history to socioeconomics - included in the human dimensions of wildlife ecology. Gary Gray maintains that the most fruitful approach to wildlife ecology grants coequality to wild animal population biology, the ecology and management of wildlife habitats, and the disciplines that consider wildlife in relation to human culture. He concentrates on socioeconomic aspects of habitat-animal-human interactions in a broad time-space-species perspective, examining topics ranging from aboriginal human-wildlife relationships to consumptive uses of wildlife and wildlife law, policy, and administration.show more

Review quote

"An easy-to-read and succinct historical review of the interface between wildlife ecology and the human elements of wildlife management. Gray shows how wildlife ecology, wildlife management, and human, economic, social, and spiritual well-being are so tightly interwoven that any treatment of the issues separately is hollow." -- Forest Scienceshow more
