A very nice summary of coyote predation, politics, and ecology. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 13 years ago. Although a bit outdated (1977), Pringle really produces a nice summary of the biological and political issues involved in coyote management. Written for a middle and high school audience, I've lent my copy to college students on multiple occasions to give them a quick overview of the issues. There is no better short and concise summary of the "coyote controversy.

The Controversial Coyote: Predation, Politics, and Ecology, Harcourt (New York, NY), 1977. Pringle spent many hours out of doors, exploring, and one day he came upon a book at home that, as he later recalled, inspired in him "a deeper interest in the natural world. Death Is Natural, Four Winds (New York, NY), 1977. The Gentle Desert: Exploring an Ecosystem, Macmillan (New York, NY), 1977. One May day I noticed some little birds flitting among the half-formed leaves of an elm. Their colors were so striking: I wondered what they were.

lt;< Chapter 10 Chapter 11 Chapter 12 . Ultimately, the source of energy for all life originates from the sun. Plants utilize the sun's energy, animals eat plants and utilize the plants' energy, and some animals eat other animals and utilize their energy. The food chain is a cycle of predation, and although it is necessary for life to exist, it has to have limits.

Political ecology is the study of the relationships between political, economic and social factors with environmental issues and changes. Political ecology differs from apolitical ecological studies by politicizing environmental issues and phenomena.

When herbivores avoid areas with high predation risk, the intensity of plant consumption and nutrient deposition is distributed unevenly across landscapes. Experimental work in African savanna ecosystems shows that the biggest herbivores, virtually immune to predators, smooth out these imbalances.

Critical Political Ecology brings political debate to the science of ecology. The 13-digit and 10-digit formats both work. As political controversies multiply over the science underlying environmental debates.

Our results indicate that predation risk may have profound effects on the structure of ecosystems and is an important constituent of native biodiversity

Predation management, while controversial in the public arena, is. .To conduct predation management in a responsible manner, the nature of predation impacts to prey populations must be examined and understood.

Predation management, while controversial in the public arena, is occasionally necessary to help balance populations of prey and predators. The authors discuss: 1) various factors which affect predation impacts, 2) behavioral changes in prey populations which result in secondary predation impacts, and 3) strategies which may be implemented to facilitate prey populations to attain agency management objectives.
