    ABSTRACT: This article examined a typology of female hunters, factors constraining participation, and negotiation strategies females used to overcome constraints. A survey of Oregon hunters was conducted in the summer of 2010 to understand hunting characteristics using the 2008 big game license database (n = 392). We created a typology of female hunters using a cluster analysis of Recreation Experience Preference items. Four clusters were identified: less-engaged, family oriented, nature-sport, and all around enthusiast. Analysis of variance revealed differences among female hunter segments. Differences existed among the four groups on both constraints and negotiation strategies. One of the notable groups was the family-oriented hunter. This type of hunter was the most likely to perceive constraints and the most likely to utilize negotiation strategies to increase their participation in hunting. Findings reveal nuanced differences between types of female hunters. These findings can assist managers with outreach strategies and facilitate future female hunting participation.

    ABSTRACT: We quantified elephant–train casualties along the 163 km (101 mi) Siliguri-Alipurduar railway line in northern West Bengal, India and assessed stakeholder perceptions about this conflict. We found that casualties have increased post-conversion of this railway line from meter to broad gauge, and are highest during monsoons and winters. Higher casualty risk was associated with closer distances to nearest curve and higher forest cover. Elephants frequently visit near this railway line, and 83% of households living in close proximity to this line sighted elephants during 2012. Most train operators (87%) said that elephant–train collisions had increased, and cited speed, low visibility, and lack of warning systems as main reasons. Among household respondents, reasons for accidents included an increase in both train numbers and speed. Our suggestions for mitigating the conflict include installation of sensor-systems that can warn train drivers about approaching animals, and shifting trains to the alternate existing railway line.

    ABSTRACT: Ecological economics assigns value to resources. Valuation can be difficult when the resource is a species, particularly one that does not directly impact humans. The endangered golden-cheeked warbler (Setophaga chrysoparia) is a songbird that breeds exclusively in central Texas. Using a door-to-door survey design, we investigated knowledge and willingness to pay for golden-cheeked warbler recovery actions in Austin, Texas, a city attempting to balance human population growth with conservation of several endangered species. Approximately half of respondents had knowledge of this species; of those 80% knew it was endangered. Seventy-four percent of respondents believed the species held value, and most regarded that value as existence-based. The mean willingness to pay was $21.47 per person annually over a 5-year period, including individuals not willing to pay. Our study indicated the public values the warbler, and is willing to provide monetary support for recovery and conservation efforts.

    ABSTRACT: User satisfaction has frequently been used to evaluate outdoor recreationists’ quality of the experience. Similarly, recreational conflict has been important in previous literature as an approach to providing for a better understanding of conflict. This article examined potential conflict between whitewater boaters and anglers on the North Umpqua River. Our goal was to test the influence of ingroup and outgroup conflict and perceived crowding on trip satisfaction. Two multiple regression analyses found that the overall trip satisfaction of boaters and anglers was negatively influenced by perceived crowding. There was very little conflict intensity, and the zoning approach seemed to minimize in- and outgroup conflict. In this case the river is seen as a well-managed river recreation setting.
