New book chapter from D.L. Clifford in Carnivore Ecology and Conservation

We are very excited to announce that HALI’s Dr. Deana Clifford has a published new book chapter, “Investigating cause-specific mortality and diseases in carnivores: tools and techniques”. The book chapter is published in Carnivore Ecology and Conservation: A Handbook of Techniques, and is available through the Oxford University Press.  Check out the book if you’re interested in research methods and techniques for the study and conservation of terrestrial carnivore species. Congrats Deana!

Carnivore Ecology and Conservation

A Handbook of Techniques

Edited by Luigi Boitani and Roger A. Powell


Description. Animals that must hunt and kill for at least part of their living are inherently interesting to many people and the role that carnivores play in biological communities attract interest from ecologists and conservation biologists. Conflicts with human activities stimulate continual debates about the management of carnivore populations, and throughout the world people seek workable solutions for human/carnivore coexistence.This concise yet authoritative handbook describes research methods and techniques for the study and conservation of all terrestrial carnivore species. Particular attention is paid to techniques for managing the human/carnivore interface. Descriptions of the latest methodologies are supported by references to case studies, whilst dedicated boxes are used to illustrate how a technique is applied to a specific land cover type, species, or particular socio-economic context. The book describes the most recent advances in modelling the patterns of animal distributions, movements, and use of land cover types, as well as including the most efficient methods to trap, handle, and mark carnivores. Carnivores are biogeographically diverse and whilst extensive scientific research has investigated many aspects of carnivore biology, not all species have been equally covered. This book is unique in its intention to provide practical guidance for carrying out research and conservation of carnivores across all species and areas of the world.

Features

  • Provides concise, yet authoritative descriptions of the most common techniques used to study wild carnivores and to conserve and manage their populations within increasingly human-dominated landscapes 
  • Collates and synthesizes a widely dispersed literature, creating a single handbook for its application to field work 
  • Descriptions of the latest techniques are supported by references to case studies, whilst dedicated boxes are used to illustrate how a technique is applied to a specific land cover type, species, or particular socio-economic context
