Conserving large carnivores: Dollars and fence


My guest blog post on lion conservation is up at Scientific American! I write about how data I collected in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve in 2005 were combined with lion count data from more than 40 other sites on the continent to test hypotheses about management options and conditions affect lions. The data were published today in the journal Ecology Letters.

Here is the blog post and here is the abstract of the scientific paper. I am happy to email a pdf of the paper to anyone who needs a copy, just contact me through the website.
