Human-Carnivoran Interactions Symposium

Why?

Large carnivorans and humans are joined by a Pleistocene-old imbroglio of fear, competition, domestication and extinction. In the last decades, the importance of large carnivorans in maintaining ecosystem integrity and functional diversity has given a hopeful, inspiring twist to those long relations.

Aims

The “Human-Carnivoran interactions: past, present, and future” symposium will focus on that Archimedean point between the past and future of human relations with carnivorans. The one-day event will include papers aiming to provide a broad perspective on paleobiological and conservation/restoration related issues, aiming to integrate past and present perspectives on carnivores and humans.
