    Zoning has been widely used in biodiversity conservation in the creation of national parks, nature reserves and other protected areas. The focus of this chapter is to examine how zoning can be applied to the conservation of large carnivores. This chapter provides an overview of the biophysical and socio-political dimensions of large carnivore conservation in North America. We describe common challenges and discuss myths, symbolism, values, political polarization, and other factors. To be successful, carnivore conservation requires well-designed public decision-making processes (governance) that can .

    • Protect and manage ecologically meaningful populations of large carnivores and wild herbivores. See book: Large Carnivores and the conservation of biodiversity (Ray et al. ). • Protect and manage keystone species • Maintain the co-existence of people and nature (culture-nature relationship) The wolf is regarded as a keystone species. Wildlife & Biodiversity Academia can help humans and large carnivores coexist. It can help foster better institutional arrangements, especially in places like Romania, India and Brazil, where there are substantial populations of people and large carnivores in shared spaces.

      Conflicts over the conservation of biodiversity are increasing and are serious obstacles to wildlife conservation efforts worldwide. Changing patterns in land use, over-exploitation, pollution, climate change and the threat posed by invasive species all challenge the way we currently maintain and protect biodiversity - from the local management of single .

Large Carnivores and the Conservation of Biodiversity is the first detailed, broad-scale examination of the empirical evidence regarding the role of large carnivores in biodiversity conservation. Conserving large carnivores: Dollars and fence production and biodiversity conservation: Land sharing and land sparing.

a particular concern for the conservation of large carnivores, but. Preservation of large carnivores is one of the greatest conservation challenges facing the world today. Saving them would indicate a willingness to share the planet and its resources with another.

As the study notes, human actions cannot fully replace the role of large carnivores because these large carnivores are an intrinsic part of an ecosystem’s biodiversity. As a simple example, the loss of a large carnivore may mean in the short term the herbivores they prey on may increase in numbers but this can also result in a deterioration.

Origin. The word rewilding was coined by members of the grassroots network Earth First!, appearing in print byand was refined by conservation biologists Michael Soulé and Reed Noss in a paper published in According to Soulé and Noss, rewilding is a conservation method based on "cores, corridors, and carnivores." The concepts of cores, corridors, and carnivores.

Michael Soulé is considered by many to be the grandfather of conservation biology. He formed the Wildlands Project, now the Wildands Network, over a decade ago.

A dozen vigorous, local ecosystem-conservation campaigns creating biological corridors are now underway in the Americas, from A2A (Algonquins to Adirondacks) to Y2Y (Yellowstone to Yukon), from the.

Current ecological knowledge indicates that large carnivores are necessary for the maintenance of biodiversity and ecosystem function. Human actions cannot fully replace the role of large carnivores.

Additionally, the future of increasing human resource demands and changing climate will affect biodiversity and ecosystem resiliency. Photo: IUCN The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ is the world's most comprehensive inventory of the global conservation status of plant and animal species.

It uses a set of quantitative criteria to evaluate the extinction risk of thousands of species. These criteria are relevant to most species and all regions of the world. The conservation of large carnivores is a formidable challenge for biodiversity conservation. Using a data set on the past and current status of brown bears (Ursus arctos), Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx), gray wolves (Canis lupus), and wolverines (Gulo gulo) in European countries, we show that roughly one-third of mainland Europe hosts at least one large carnivore species.

From the perspective of biodiversity conservation, the impacts of border structures have, until very recently, been largely ignored. That is perhaps because most conservation-biology studies are conducted in North America and Western Europe, where border structures, until recently, have not been much of an issue, suggests Linnell.

Large carnivores are some of the most charismatic and ecologically-influential organisms on Earth. Through their interactions with other animals, large carnivores may affect faunal and floral communities across multiple trophic levels (Darwin,Leopold,Hairston et al., ).This process is known as a trophic cascade (Paine, ), and is a.

In high-altitude settings of Central Asia the Endangered snow leopard Panthera uncia has been recognized as a potential umbrella species. As a first step in assessing the potential benefits of snow leopard conservation for other carnivores, we sought a better understanding of the presence of other carnivores in areas occupied by snow leopards in China's Qilianshan.

Context. Biodiversity, or biological diversity, is the variety of life and includes all living organisms found on Earth. It plays a key role in the functioning of ecosystems and the provision of ecosystem services which are essential for human life and well-being.

These include provisioning services (e.g. fisheries, biomass), regulating and maintenance services (e.g. The linkage between conservation strategies for large carnivores and biodiversity: The view from the half-full forests of Europe.

A Book of Procedures and separate Guidelines on damage estimation were prepared – in cooperation with the Ministry of Environment – to ensure a coherent and transparent scheme for compensation of damages caused by bears. Key Topics in Conservation Biology 2 will, like its sister volume, be a valuable resource in universities and colleges, government departments, and conservation agencies.

It is aimed particularly at senior undergraduate and graduate students in conservation biology and wildlife management and wider ecological and environmental subjects, and. With the abundance of fruiting trees and plants, there is a wide diversity of Amazon when there are herbivores, carnivores are never far away.
