Abstract Wildlife captures the imagination of humans. The image of wildlife and human-wildlife conflicts differs among people. Therefore, it is essential in a book that addresses human-wildlife conflicts to first clarify what we understand by “wildlife” and “human-wildlife conflicts”. In the broadest sense, all wild, undomesticated animals and plants belong to wildlife but most frequently the term refers to medium to large-sized terrestrial vertebrates that are hunted by humans as a resource, trophy, or because they compete with humans for food or space. This is particularly the case when talking about human-wildlife conflicts and we use the word wildlife in this sense throughout this book.
