Associate Professor of Environmental Studies Philip Nyhus has collaborated with students in two recently published papers. “Global patterns and trends in human-wildlife conflict compensation,” coauthored with Jeremy Ravenelle ’18, appears in the December 2017 issue of Conservation Biology, which is the flagship journal of the Society for Conservation Biology.
