“I Did, I Did Taw a Puddy Tat!” Pumas in Urban Ecosystems of Latin America: A Review of the Mediatic Information

The concentration of people living in small areas has increased in the last decade, with more than half of the world's population living in cities. This is particularly true for Latin America, a

Using habitat suitability information from across a species range to inform understudied ecosystems

Knowledge of habitat suitability (HS) is required for effective conservation planning, yet it can be difficult to obtain. In the absence of local HS information, managers often use studies from other

Human–Wildlife Conflicts across Landscapes—General Applicability vs. Case Specificity

Here, we address the question of if/to what extent human–wildlife conflict (HWC) can be reduced or mitigated by supra-regional or even global approaches, or whether case- and region-specific

Multi‐population puma connectivity could restore genomic diversity to at‐risk coastal populations in California

TLDR
The results demonstrate that genetically at risk populations are typically nested within a broader‐scale group of interconnected populations that collectively retain high genetic diversity and heterogenous fixations, and extant variation at the broader scale has potential to restore diversity to local populations if management actions can enhance vital gene flow and recombine locally sequestered genetic diversity.

Broad-scale puma connectivity could restore genomic diversity to fine-scale coastal populations

TLDR
The results demonstrate that genetically at-risk populations are typically nested within a broader-scale group of interconnected populations that collectively retains high genetic diversity and heterogeneous fixations, and extant variation at the broader scale has potential to restore diversity to local populations if management actions can enhance vital gene flow and recombine locally sequestered genetic diversity.

Human-Wildlife Conflicts in the Southern Yungas: What Role do Raptors Play for Local Settlers?

TLDR
The results suggest that conflict is only concentrated in certain high-profile raptor species—particularly those considered cattle predators—with a general high tolerance towards poultry predators, which indicates a relatively peaceful coexistence of people with raptors.

Framing of visual content shown on popular social media may affect viewers’ attitudes to threatened species

Content published on social media may affect user’s attitudes toward wildlife species. We evaluated viewers’ responses to videos published on a popular social medium, focusing particularly on how the

Scientific knowledge of species and the ecosystems they inhabit is the cornerstone of modern conservation. However, research effort is not spread evenly among taxa (taxonomic bias), which may

Predator Control Needs a Standard of Unbiased Randomized Experiments With Cross-Over Design

TLDR
The gold-standard has been proven feasible in field experiments with predators and livestock, so it is called for replicating that across the world on different methods of predator control, in addition to striving for an even higher standard that can improve reproducibility and reliability of the science of predators control.

A framework of most effective practices in protecting human assets from predators

ABSTRACT Widespread damage by large mammalian predators to human assets (e.g., livestock, crops, neighborhood safety) requires the application of non-invasive (i.e., without direct contact with
