Wildlife management in contemporary society means balancing multiple demands in shared landscapes. Perhaps the greatest question facing today's policy makers and wildlife professionals is how to develop frameworks for coexistence between wildlife and the plethora of other land use interests. As a profession, the roots of wildlife management and conservation can be traced back to the 1600's, but most of the relevant frameworks that have shaped the management of wildlife over time have emerged…

Human-wildlife coexistence in a changing world.
The synthesis revealed that inter- and transdisciplinary approaches and multilevel governance approaches can help stakeholders and institutions implement sustainable management strategies that promote human-wildlife coexistence.
Rethinking the study of human–wildlife coexistence
A basic approach to case studies is recommended aimed at expanding the scope of inquiries into human–wildlife relations beyond studies of rational behavior and quantification of costs and benefits of wildlife to humans.
A critical perspective on the concept of biocultural diversity and its emerging role in nature and heritage conservation
The continuing losses of biodiversity around the world remain problematic for nature conservation. A fundamental issue that has triggered debates in nature conservation is the relationship between
The emergence of biodiversity conflicts from biodiversity impacts: characteristics and management strategies
Conflicts between the conservation of biodiversity and other human activities occur in all habitats and can impact severely upon socio-economic and biological parameters. In a changing environment,
Renewal ecology: conservation for the Anthropocene
The global scale and rapidity of environmental change is challenging ecologists to reimagine their theoretical principles and management practices. Increasingly, historical ecological conditions are
Rewilding – A New Paradigm for Nature Conservation in Scotland?
This review considers the development of the concept and its possible application in Scotland, and identifies substantial scope for rewilding, in terms of the restoration and protection of large areas of wild land, and of the reintroduction of native species which have been driven to extinction by human activity.
Rewilding complex ecosystems
A framework for rewilding actions that can serve as a guideline for researchers and managers and aims to promote beneficial interactions between society and nature, and identifies trophic complexity, stochastic disturbances, and dispersal as three critical components of natural ecosystem dynamics.
The challenges and opportunities of coexisting with wild ungulates in the human-dominated landscapes of Europe's Anthropocene
The cumulative impact of human activities has driven many species into severe declines across the globe. However, the recent focus on conservation optimism has begun to highlight case studies that go
Addressing inequality and intolerance in human–wildlife coexistence
It is suggested more empathetic advocacy is needed that promotes conservation while appropriately considering those who bear the costs of conflict with wildlife, and to achieve more equitable cost-sharing, limiting the costs incurred by those most affected or by sharing those costs more widely.
