Large carnivores include iconic species such as bears, wolves and big cats. Their habitats are increasingly being shared with humans, and there is a growing number of examples of human-carnivore coexistence as well as conflict. Next to population dynamics of large carnivores, there are considerable attitude shifts towards these species worldwide with multiple implications.

This book argues and demonstrates why human dimensions of relationships to large carnivores are crucial for their successful conservation and management. It provides an overview of theoretical and methodological perspectives, heterogeneity in stakeholder perceptions and behaviour as well as developments in decision making, stakeholder involvement, policy and governance informed by human dimensions of large carnivore conservation and management. The scope is international, with detailed examples and case studies from Europe, North and South America, Central and South Asia, as well as debates of the challenges faced by urbanization, agricultural expansion, national parks and protected areas. The main species covered include bears, wolves, lynx, and leopards.

The book provides a novel perspective for advanced students, researchers and professionals in ecology and conservation, wildlife management, human-wildlife interactions, environmental education and environmental social science.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This excellent volume condenses decaded of high-quality research into who the relevant stakeholders are, how they interact with each other, and how their value systems, mandates and actions influence the legitimacy and outcomes of carnivore management policies...This book is neither dogmatic nor does it contain unnecessary jargon, making it an accessible resource that provides generous practical guidance...The book covers a lot of ground and it provides a valuable resource for those involved in, or unfamiliar with, the human dimensions of large carnivore conservation and management.' - Florian J. Weise, Ongava Research Centre, Namibia in Fauna & Flora International, Cambridge, UK (https://doi.org/10.1017/S0030605319000486)
