Ruth Musgrave, director of the Center for Wildlife Law at the Institute of Public Law, authored a chapter in the book, Wildlife and Society in the 21st Century (Island Press, 2008). Her chapter is titled, "Legal Trends in Fish and Wildlife Policy".
Musgrave presented a talk on the topic of her chapter at a late September conference titled, "Pathways to Success: Integrating Human Dimensions into Fish and Wildlife Management." The conference will be hosted by Colorado State University's Warner College of Natural Resources.
The book presents an overview of the changing culture of fish and wildlife management, considers social factors creating change in fish and wildlife conservation, explores how to build the social component into the philosophy of wildlife management, discusses legal and institutional factors and examines social perspectives on contemporary fish and wildlife management issues.
