Wildlife management around the world can vary widely in its objectives. In different places, the same species may be considered as a pest, as game or classified as strictly protected. To achieve the same goal for the same species,a diverse array of tools are used all over the world. Whatever the objectives, scientists use various techniques to count, track, monitor, describe and analyse species; and managers use various ways to protect, control, care for or increase the population of a species.

The IUGB 2013 congress aims to examine this variation and to search for the underlying reasons - many existing and new topics will be reviewed giving the various tools full attention.
