Special Issue "Sustainable Wildlife Management"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2016)
Prof. Dr. Shelley Burgin
There is an escalating world human population which shows no sign of abating, and associated human activities are increasingly impacting on native wildlife. As a consequence, across the globe, in cities, agricultural landscapes, rivers, oceans, deserts, and even within areas set aside for the conservation of wildlife, there are many ‘losers’ with relatively few ‘winners’, even among those protected within lands set aside for the wildlife conservation. Few taxa, therefore, are truly being managed sustainably anywhere in the world. Without sustainability, however, the impacts on single species, assemblages, and ecosystems will continue with the degradation of habitats, and extinctions of species. This Special Issue of Sustainability seeks to provide a forum to discuss wildlife sustainability. Submission of papers dealing with sustainability of wildlife in any of its nuances is encouraged.
