This concise yet authoritative handbook describes research methods and techniques for the study and conservation of all terrestrial carnivore species. Techniques for managing the human/carnivore interface are covered in great detail. Descriptions of the latest methodologies are supported by references to case studies, whilst dedicated boxes are used to show 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. 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.
