ABOUT THIS BOOK

Wildlife and Recreationists defines and clarifies the issues surrounding the conflict between outdoor recreation and the health and well-being of wildlife and ecosystems. Contributors to the volume consider both direct and indirect effects of widlife-recreationist interactions, including:



  • wildlife responses to disturbance, and the origins of these responses

  • how specific recreational activities affect diverse types of wildlife

  • the human dimensions of managing recreationists

  • the economic importance of outdoor recreation

  • how wildlife and recreationists might be able to coexist


The book is a useful synthesis of what is known concerning wildlife and recreation. More important, it addresses both research needs and management options to minimize conflicts.
