My identify is Klemen Jerina and I used to be not too long ago appointed as a topic editor for Wildlife Biology.
I’m wildlife researcher working totally on ecology, conservation and administration of huge carnivores and ungulates in Eurasia, particularly in central Europe and Balkan. Most of my analysis work has been devoted to brown bear, gray wolf, pink and roe deer, wild boar, chamois and Barbary sheep, and to a smaller diploma to different recreation and guarded species. My research these days primarily give attention to utilized points, necessary from administration and conservation perspective, resembling understanding the causes of human-wildlife conflicts and their prevention, cons and execs of synthetic feeding, short-term and long-term results of selective looking, transboundary populations in fragmented European landscapes.
I’m employed as professor of Wildlife Ecology and Administration on the College of Ljubljana (Division for Forestry and Renewable Forest Sources, Biotechnical School), coordinate a PhD research and a lab for Forest Safety and Wildlife Administration, and function a member of Massive Carnivore Initiative for Europe and Bear Specialist Group (IUCN).

I particularly recognize innovativeness and use of sound logic within the analysis. On the identical time, my experiences taught me that efficient administration is feasible solely when key stakeholders are included, for which frequently compromises must be taken.
Coming from a small village in Slovenia, nation with very excessive forest protection and fauna range, wildlife surrounded me since I bear in mind and have become my ardour throughout my early childhood, and this by no means left me.

I’m fully hooked on ocean, free diving and speargun-fishing.
