    Description / Table of Contents: This book investigates the polarization between wildlife managers and wildlife researchers and provides strategies for bridging cultural and communication gaps between these groups. The text covers the history of the longstanding disconnect, research and management entities, species case studies, management and policy case studies, and conclusions and future directions. The authors present case studies of both successful and failed interactions, providing a platform for discussion of the underlying issues. They examine current issues in wildlife science and management to explore real-world implications resulting from the research and management disconnect.
