Krause, Monika and Katherine Robinson, "Charismatic Species and Beyond: How Cultural Schemas and Organisational Routines shape Conservation"

Monika Krause and Katherine Robinson follow up on the observation that charismatic species attract a disproportionate amount of attention and resources in international conservation by investigating how cultural schemas and organizational routines shape resource allocation in conservation more broadly.

Crown, Crystal A. and Kalli F. Doubleday, "‘Man-eaters’ in the Media: Representation of Human-leopard Interactions in India Across Local, National, and International Media"

Crystal A. Crown and Kalli F. Doubleday explore media representation of Human-Leopard Interactions (HLI) in India, focusing on detecting agenda-setting and framing in articles, and whether these differ with the level of association with HLI. They conclude that the largely negative depiction, and differences in representation between geographic locations, could hinder mitigation strategies and policy by presenting stakeholders with incomplete information.

Jones, Sorrel, Malcolm D. Burgess, Frazer Sinclair, Jeremy Lindsell and Juliet Vickery, "Optimal Monitoring Strategy to Detect Rule-breaking: A Power and Simulation Approach Parameterised with Field Data from Gola Rainforest National Park, Sierra Leone"

Sorrel Jones, Malcolm D. Burgess, Frazer Sinclair, Jeremy Lindsell and Juliet Vickery present new data on rule-breaking prevalence in Gola Rainforest National Park, Sierra Leone, and use these data in spatially explicit simulations to assess the survey effort and design required to detect change and assess the effect of rule-breaker behavior to these designs.

Costa, Susana, Catarina Casanova and Phyllis Lee, "What Does Conservation Mean for Women? The Case of the Cantanhez Forest National Park"

Susana Costa, Catarina Casanova, and Phyllis Lee present a study of the obstacles to women's participation in conservation strategies associated with Cantanhez Forest National Park (CFNP), in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa.
