A Framework for Assessing Impacts of Wild Meat Hunting Practices in the Tropics
Hunting is one of the most serious threats to biodiversity globally. While the nature and impacts of hunting have been widely studied, many of the findings have remained disconnected. We review what is known about the conservation-relevant outcomes of different hunting approaches and highlight gaps in current understanding.
