Reconciling gamebird hunting and biodiversity (REGHAB)

Objective

Game bird hunting is an important socio-economic activity in Europe. It can provide benefits to biodiversity through e.g. the maintenance or management of habitats, but may also have negative implications for biodiversity, through e.g. the unsustainable use of resources or the illegal persecution of raptors in order to maximise game numbers. The latter is a key conflict for nature conservation in Europe. The aims of this proposal are:
1) to provide a global review on the costs and benefits of game bird hunting to biodiversity in different hunting regimes throughout Europe;
2) to review the conflicts between predator control and raptor conservation in Europe within the context of predator-prey interactions;
3) to address these conflicts in the context of the socio-economic value of hunting, and evaluate methods of reducing these conflicts; and,
4) to identify critical areas where knowledge is lacking, and propose future research priorities.
