Well, this is truly a momentous occasion for the Berryman Institute: publication of the inaugural issue of its scientific journal, Human– Wildlife Conflicts (HWC). This issue has been long in the making (over 2 years), but well worth the wait!!!!!! Oh my oh my oh my!! Wildlife-damage management, and more generally, human–wildlife conflict resolution, continues to grow in prominence, and the Berryman Institute is ready and able to work with all of its state, federal, and private partners to address these issues through sound empirical research and outstanding outreach programs. HWC is designed to place wildlife damage management in the same forefront as other fields of study in wildlife. With the leadership of Dr. Michael Conover as its editor, we are confident that our journal will provide practicing scientists, field personnel, and wildlife biologists with critical information necessary to address the diverse issues that face us concerning human–wildlife conflict resolution. We all are so proud of this accomplishment that is so greatly needed by our clientele!!!!
