Finding buying guides with a Web carnivore

R. Kraft, R. Stata
Proceedings of the IEEE/LEOS 3rd International Conference on Numerical Simulation of Semiconductor Optoelectronic Devices (IEEE Cat. No.03EX726)  
Given this, we built a Web carnivore that finds buying guides on behalf of consumers.  ...  However, while the Web contains many buying guides, finding those guides is difficult to impossible for the average consumer.  ...  We have reduced this to under a hundred, but would like to reduce it even further (while improving precision). Conclusions This paper presented a Web carnivore for finding buying guides on the Web.  ...

Trophy hunters pay more to target larger-bodied carnivores

Ilona Mihalik, Andrew W. Bateman, Chris T. Darimont
2019 Royal Society Open Science  
In a dataset on 721 guided hunts for 15 North American large mammals, prices listed online increased with body size in carnivores (from approximately $550 to $1800 USD/day across the observed range).  ...  Costly signalling theory provides a potential explanation, proposing that hunters target species that impose high costs (e.g. higher failure and injury risks, lower consumptive returns) because it signals  ...  Whereas in the past, underlying qualities were necessary to hunt costly prey, today's guided hunters can simply buy such opportunities in a context with no obvious fitness-related penalties of cheating  ...

Large carnivores can be seen as an added value by some but as a source of difficulties by others, depending on different values, attitudes, livelihoods, and everyday activities.  ...  interest groups is important to identify and shape tailored solutions that can potentially be implemented, complementing top-down approaches that might, on their own, result in lack of implementation and buy-in  ...  The criteria we used were pragmatic, reflecting the urgent need to find concrete solutions to improve coexistence between people and carnivores in the three project areas.  ...
