More information about this seller Contact this seller 5. Published by Island Press, United States Language: English. Brand new Book. This is a comprehensive approach to the human dimensions of fish and wildlife management. As human populations around the world continue to expand, reconciling nature conservation with human needs and aspirations is imperative.
The emergence in recent decades of the academic field of human dimensions of fish and wildlife management is a proactive response to this complex problem. The chapters document the progress on key issues and offer a multifaceted presentation of this truly interdisciplinary field. The book: presents an overview of the changing culture of fish and wildlife management; considers social factors creating change in fish and wildlife conservation; explores how to build the social component into the philosophy of wildlife management; discusses legal and institutional factors; and, examines social perspectives on contemporary fish and wildlife management issues.
It offers perspectives from a wide variety of academic disciplines as well as presenting the views of practitioners from the United States, Europe, Africa, and Latin America. It is an important new reference for anyone concerned with fish and wildlife management or environmental conservation and protection.

One fundamental premise is that people are interested in and care about fish and wildlife, and it is their relationships to animals and their habitats that are critical to sustaining animal diversity and the benefits arising from our association with these critters. Americans' burgeoning use of the outdoors following World War II set the stage for the study of human dimensions of fish and wildlife to emerge. To be sure, before the s in the United States naturalist and scientific writers were beginning to note the relationships between people and wildlife, both the pleasures and the controversies.
Aldo Leopold, for example, clearly pointed us to the social and political world of wildlife management. But during the s, as more and more people poured into our national parks and monuments, national forests, fish and wildlife refuges, and private recreational lands and forests, human dimensions issues became more and more prominent. The U.
Fish and Wildlife Service reported that we had taken million fishing trips by , indicating that we were well on the way to meeting the prediction U. Fish and Wildlife Service Similarly for hunting, ORRRC used a million-occasion baseline and projected participation at million occasions by ORRRC , yet in we had already exceeded the projection with million trips U. In the consumptive wildlife areas of fishing and hunting, use was skyrocketing; adding to that were the growing urban and nonconsumptive uses of fish and wildlife. Three groups of human dimensions scientists began to respond to the issues of growing use and interest in fish and wildlife.
Biologists and naturalists were called upon to provide insight to policy makers responsible for fish and wildlife management. A classic case of this was the work of the Craighead brothers, who reviewed bear management in Yellowstone National Park in relation to human encounters with bears and some of the management practices that were causing problems for both bears and management Craighead, Sumner, and Mitchell Economists such as those at Utah State University also responded with studies of the use and value of wildlife, especially by hunters and fishers Wennergren , ; Finally, an emerging group of noneconomic social scientists became engaged in trying to characterize both the users and the phenomenon of human relationships with wildlife Hendee and Potter From these early efforts sprung what we now characterize as the human dimensions of fish and wildlife.
In the early s, human dimensions study got a real boost when John Hendee and Clay Schoenfeld developed a human dimensions session at the 38th North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conference and then published the nineteen papers that were presented Hendee and Schoenfeld These papers stretched from defining and evaluating recreation quality to assessing elk behavior in relation to human activities such as cattle grazing, recreation, and traffic.
Human dimensions sessions were organized at subsequent North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conferences, thus stimulating a vital field of inquiry. As we moved through the s and early s scientists were expending considerable effort on various topics of the human dimensions of fish and wildlife. For example, in Wisconsin Tom Heberlein and his students were actively applying sociological principles and theories to the field; in Colorado Doug Gilbert was exploring wildlife and other natural resource communications, and Jack Hautaluoma and Perry Brown were exploring the psychological dimensions underlying big-game hunting; in Arizona Bill Shaw was leading us to an understanding of why some people oppose hunting; and at Yale Steve Kellert was teasing out the various values underlying people's relationships to fish and wildlife e.
Economists were continuing to explore the nature of nonmarketed resources with fish and wildlife as prime examples e. Once we began to notice that more and more people were entering the field, fourteen of us from around the country agreed to meet in Minneapolis at the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge in the early s to explore how we might organize to promote the field. This group immediately began gathering members, started a quarterly newsletter, and became the focal point for organizing meetings and symposia.

The group was important in developing a language around human dimensions of fish and wildlife and in giving the emerging group of human dimensions graduate students a home for their energy and interests. Other human dimensions activities were under way as well, many of them focused on parks and recreation and on public policy regarding natural resources.

Some of the same people involved in the fish and wildlife work were involved in these realms, but there were other people as well. Thus, a significant collection of human dimensions of natural resources scientists was developing. The culmination of this activity was the first conference devoted to social science in natural resources, held at Oregon State University in and hosted by Don Field and Perry Brown. A wide variety of social scientists studying a wide variety of topics, including the human dimensions of fish and wildlife, attended the conference, which now occurs somewhere in North America every other year.
The conference became truly international in when Mike Manfredo organized the first non—North American version of the conference in Belize. This conference also occurs every other year but outside North America, attracting many researchers from around the world.

Another significant conference that occurred in the mids dealt with the topic of valuing wildlife Decker and Goff Many of the academic and agency scientists involved in developing the field of human dimensions of wildlife made presentations at this New York meeting, and the resulting book is a wonderful compilation of ideas the scientists were investigating at that time.
This evolution was natural, demonstrating the maturity that the field was developing across the broad area of natural resources and the environment. During this period of development, an active congressional natural resource and environment agenda, coupled with some activities in individual states, spurred the need for human dimensions work.
Especially in response to much of this legislation we began to ask questions about integration in natural resource management and how we might integrate social information with biophysical information. The general feeling was that social assessments were not being used since they simply were sections of plans and reports that were separate from other sections dealing with resources and management.
What social scientists, biologists, and resource managers had failed to do was to identify where we were working within planning and management models. Most social information fits on the demand side of the planning equation. Although the demand side certainly is relevant for identifying what and how we need to inventory and manage on the supply side, most of us have training and information on the supply side, and that bias exacerbated the problem of using social information in natural resource planning and management. We tried to integrate demand-side information with supply-side information, but it did not work.
Social factors drive resource management as demand and policy variables, not as supply variables. Thus, we were struggling with not only what to integrate but also how to integrate.
