Conservation Conflicts

Biodiversity is under increasing pressure as human populations continue to grow. Climate change, over-exploitation, land-use change, and the threat of invasive species and infectious disease all challenge the way we manage and conserve biological diversity. As a result, there are increasing numbers of conflicts between those interested in conserving species and those with alternative goals and priorities. These conflicts range from the management of single species to international differences over the management of resources. Here we present past papers published in Animal Conservation which illustrate the broad themes relevant to conflicts in conservation.
