Carnivores interact with humans in a myriad of ways, some positive, some negative, and possibly some neutral. These interactions have direct impacts on society and also have profound effects on ecosystem function and species persistence. Collaborative research led by the Applied Wildlife Ecology (AWE) Lab in the School of the Environment at Yale University will investigate carnivore-human interactions across systems. Specifically, this seminar will highlight urban environments in the US, agricultural landscapes in Chile, and protected areas in West Africa. The central theme of these coupled ecosystems in the dominant anthropogenic pressure shaping carnivore behavior and ecology as well as mechanisms for coexistence to mitigate conflict.
