Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In this special issue scientists examine how anthropogenic activities can affects bioconservation. With the current overexploited status of many wildlife resources, there is a need to link the general principles of wildlife management to how it affects biodiversity and conservation of exploited species, but also other components of the foodweb they rely on. Understanding how to preserve vulnerable or endangered species is also crucial in the present context. How do we measure the impact of humans on biodiversity and how do we elaborate management plans for wildlife resources? Examples of topics to be discussed are: what are the best tools and approaches contributing to the study, management, and conservation of wildlife species? what is the scientific basis of conservation and management that can effectively confront the crisis in biodiversity & sustainable use of wildlife resources on a long-term perspective? What is the importance of biodiversity for maintaining the structure and function of foodwebs? What are the best management strategies to conserving healthy ecosystems or sustainably use them? Can we understand, model or prevent species extinctions? What is the role of habitat preservation in maintaining the biodiversity in ecosystems?
