  • Public attitudes to the use of wildlife by Aboriginal Australians: marketing of wildlife and its conservation

    Indigenous Australians have socioeconomic attributes similar to those of residents in some developing countries. Their utilisation of wildlife could add to their economic opportunities. Attitudes of a sample of the Australian public towards the subsistence use of wildlife by Indigenous Australians and whether or not they should be allowed to sell wildlife and wildlife products are examined. ...

  • Hydrological investigations and water resources management for wildlife sanctuary in central India

    The important hydrological issues in Nauradehi Wildlife Sanctuary (NWLS) are development of water resources, development of flora and fauna, trouble–free water availability for wildlife and retention of soil moisture for maximum forest growth. In the present study, the surface and groundwater resources of the sanctuary were estimated using water balance method. The results show that the sanctuary ...

  • Efforts to standardize wildlife toxicity values remain unrealized

    Wildlife toxicity reference values (TRVs) are routinely used during screening level and baseline ecological risk assessments (ERAs). Risk assessment professionals often adopt TRVs from published sources to expedite risk analyses. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) developed Ecological Soil Screening Levels (Eco‐SSLs) to provide a source of TRVs that would improve ...

  • Climate helps to halve world wildlife in 40 years

    Human pressure has halved the numbers of many of the Earth’s wild creatures in just four decades, the Worldwide Fund for Nature says. While the main recorded threat to biodiversity comes from habitat loss and degradation, driven by unsustainable human consumption, it found, ...

  • Using sparse dose‐response data for wildlife risk assessment

    Hazard quotients based on a point‐estimate comparison of exposure to a Toxicity Reference Value (TRV) are commonly used to characterize risks for wildlife. Quotients may be appropriate for screening‐level assessments, but should be avoided in detailed assessments because they provide little insight regarding the likely magnitude of effects and associated uncertainty. To better characterize ...

  • Recommendations to improve wildlife exposure estimation for development of soil screening and cleanup values

    An integral component in the development of media‐specific values for the ecological risk assessment of chemicals is the derivation of safe levels of exposure for wildlife. Though the derivation and subsequent application of these values can be used for screening purposes, there is a need to identify the threshold for effects when making remedial decisions during site‐specific assessments. ...

  • Furthering the derivation of predictive wildlife toxicity reference values for use in soil cleanup decisions

    The development of media‐specific ecological values for risk assessment includes the derivation of acceptable levels of exposure for terrestrial wildlife (e.g., birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians). Though the derivation and subsequent application of these values can be used for screening purposes, there is a need to identify toxicological effects thresholds specifically for making ...

  • Stormwater Management for Urban Environments

    IntroductionElmhurst College, a hundred-thirty-five year old private learning institution, is proceeding with a campus redevelopment project that will include a one hundred seventy bed residence hall. In addition, the college continues to be a role model for sustainable site design and an educational resource for both students and the community.The need for additional housing, due to ...

  • Managing multimedia pollution for a multimedia world

    Due to climate-change-induced melting of essential sea ice habitat and a lack of effective regulatory mechanisms to mitigate further losses, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is now considering the polar bear for listing as a threatened species. If we could place ourselves for a moment in one potential future of the polar bear, similarly stranded in the Arctic Ocean on the last tenuous piece of ...

  • Integrated Bird Management Scheme - An Integrated Bird Management System- an explanation of the use of bio-acoustics in the management of birdstrike risk

    An Integrated Bird Management System is just part of that evolution: a stated safety management policy that, when implemented, is designed to reduce the attractions for birds on an airport and then to disperse those birds that persist by bio-acoustic and other means. The responsibility for bird risk management does not stop at the perimeter of an airport, it will involve the evaluation of land ...

  • Community management, self-interest and environmental preservation in the Amazon

    Community-based conservation supposedly meets mutual needs of people and natural resources. We examined decision-making behind management of resource extraction and agriculture in a community reserve in Peru. We conclude that self-interested motivations have the potential to create inadequate environmental protection for particular segments of the resource base. Community reserve members, ...

  • Environmental management of coastal regions in the Caspian Sea

    Considering rapid population growth and migration, higher accumulation of communities is noticed in coastal areas. This is especially true with the coastal areas of the Caspian Sea. In the present investigation coastal areas between Jouybar to Behshahr region is selected for their special geographical and ecological locations. Further, adverse impacts of human, agriculture and industrial ...

  • Article: A New Deal For Commons? Common Resource Management and the Commons Act 2006

    ABSTRACT: Common land has considerable environmental significance, and a potentially key role in the delivery of the UK government’s overall strategy for improving the environmental quality of wildlife habitats in England and Wales. Common land has a unique legal status. Establishing schemes for the conservation management of sensitive habitats and landscapes on common land is complicated by ...


  • Manage Vehicle Traffic Better with a Revetment Mat

    A revetment mat contains articulated concrete in an easy-to-install mat system. It is a well‑known method for controlling erosion and maintaining shorelines. However, a revetment mat system also creates excellent roads. You may manage a park where maintenance staff has to travel to empty trash cans or repair bathrooms, or you may require better access roads at your private ranch. No matter ...

  • Partnering in watershed management and community engagement case study

  • Towards sustainable management of huntable migratory waterbirds in Europe

    The EU Birds Directive and the African-Eurasian Waterbird Agreement provide an adequate legal framework for sustainable management of migratory waterbird populations. The main shortcoming of both instruments is that it leaves harvest decisions of a shared resource to individual Member States and Contracting Parties without providing a shared information base and mechanism to assess the impact of ...

  • Composting - Best bang for MSW management buck

    For many years, life cycle analyses of end-of-life management practices have been available for all of the basic recyclables as well as organics. The life cycle data, usually derived by the US Environmental Protection Agency's Waste Reduction Model (WARM), represents the net greenhouse gas impact of recycling, landfilling or incinerating a variety of material streams. The model calculates ...

  • Managing Endangered Species Within the Use–Preservation Paradox: The Florida Manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris) as a Tourism Attraction

    Abstract  A significant challenge to wildlife managers in tourism settings is to provide visitors with opportunities to observe rare and endangered wildlife while simultaneously protecting the target species from deleterious impacts. Nearly 100,000 people annually visit Crystal River, Florida, USA to observe and swim with the Florida manatee, an endangered species. This research aimed to ...


  • Mongolia - Environment and natural resource management socio-economic survey (ENRMSS 2010)

    Mongolia has very significant natural resources and a large part of the population is dependent on them for their daily living. The impact of the state of the environment on the living standards of herders is obvious, but also Mongolians living in the capital Ulaanbaatar have learned that air pollution, especially in winter, and other environmental problems have a deep impact on their living ...
