Special Issue in Animals: Behaviour and Management of Urban Wildlife
Most people on Earth now live in cities and town. This has been a remarkably rapid change and is likely to have significant implications for humanity, both ecologically and socially, as well as in our interactions and perceptions of wildlife. Many species are unable to adjust to the dramatic alterations associated with urbanization, while others take full advantage of the many opportunities provided by human-dominated environments. This is resulting in changing interactions between people and wild animals, increasing both the incidence and desire for positive connects with nature, as well as the scale and complexity of wildlife–human conflicts. How we approach these evolving interactions will greatly influence the way we live and coexist in this new urban world.
Original manuscripts that address these issues are invited for this Special Issue, especially those that explore: (1) our attempts to connect with nature in urban areas; (2) innovative approaches to wildlife-human conflicts; and (3) poorly understood or studied wildlife-human interactions.
