This book considers a number of problems posed by ungulates and their management in Europe. Through a synthesis of the underlying biology and a comparison of the management techniques adopted in different countries, the book explores which management approaches seem effective - and in which circumstances. Experts in a number of different areas of applied wildlife biology review various management problems and alternative solutions, including the impact of large ungulates on agriculture, forestry and conservation habitats, the impact of disease and predation on ungulate populations and the involvement of ungulates in road traffic accidents and possible measures for mitigation. This book is directed at practising wildlife managers, those involved in research to improve methods of wildlife management, and policy-makers in local, regional and national administrations.

On October 18, 2006, a workshop was held in Vancouver, WA, with the title "Managing for wildlife habitat in west-side production forests." The purpose of the workshop was to provide prescriptions and guidelines for people who manage west-side forests (those west of the Cascade Mountains' crest) primarily for wood production, but because of mandate or personal preference, want to integrate wildlife values. The audience included over 150 professionals from forest industry, consulting firms, and public and tribal forest and wildlife management agencies. This proceedings includes ten papers based on oral presentations at the workshop plus a synthesis paper summarizing workshop themes, discussions, and related information. Topics include a history of wildlife management research in the Pacific Northwest, elements of habitat and how to manage for them, the challenges of appropriately implementing ecosystem management, and economic implications to private forestland owners.

"At the beginning of the Third Book, we find our old friend Trinket on an important mission in Kunming, the capital city of scenic Yunnan Province and seat of Satrap Wu Sangui, warlord of south-western China. The Satrap's imminent bid for Imperial power, and his ultimate defeat (1681), dominate much of the 'official' plot of the book. But the real interest, as always, lies in Trinket's increasingly complex attempts to balance his own multiple identities: as friend and confidant of the Emperor Kang Xi, as the White Dragon Marshal of the Mystic Dragon Sect, and as one of the Lodge Masters of the Triad Secret Society." "His love life poses even more challenges, as he simultaneously juggles several beautiful women and unwittingly comes face to face with the beautiful Chen Yuanyuan, known as the Peerless Consort. In one of the most intriguing of his liaisons, he accidentally encounters the Russian Princess Sophia, a young lady of easy virtue, travels with her to Moscow, and becomes her lover. This adventure later qualifies him (in the Emperor's eyes) to be nominated as the Chinese Imperial Plenipotentiary for the border negotiations with Russia leading to the Treaty of Nerchinsk (1689), a diplomatic event as riotously convoluted as it is grand." "But our anti-hero was never cut out to be a Prince of the Realm. He finally decides that it is 'Time for Trink to quit!' Rejecting once and for all the glamour of worldly glory and wealth, he returns with his seven beautiful wives to his old home in the south, opting for a life of simple pleasure, his ultimate destiny shrouded in mystery ..." --Book Jacket.
