using ecology to understand carnivore-livestock conflict

A group paper I led on using ecology to understand carnivore-livestock conflict and promote coexistence has just been published in Conservation Biology! Working with such inspiring, multidisciplinary coauthors was a joy. You can find the study here.

Additionally, here is the UC Berkeley press release about the study.

And here is a blog I wrote for Defenders of Wildlife.

Our group’s goal is that the framework we present in the study will provide a concrete set of ecological guiding principles for researchers, conservationists, and livestock managers who are seeking to alleviate carnivore-livestock conflict.
