ABSTRACT
Exploitation of wildlife populations by indigenous peoples typically involves exploitation of herbivores, such as bison, deer, or elk, or of fishes, such as salmon or halibut. It is unusual for hunting societies to focus much of their attention on top carnivores in an ecological system. This unusual state of affairs and its long term ecological consequences are the topic of this collection of papers.
