dc.descriptionWe conducted a literature review with the aim to provide a representative picture of how the terms coexistence, tolerance, and acceptance are currently used, defined, and measured in wildlife conservation in Africa. We identified 392 papers containing one or more of the three terms. A definition of coexistence, tolerance and acceptance was often missing, and when these three concepts were described they often referred to conservation goals and measurements and lacked discussion on how to reach or testing these goals. These results confirm the lack of clear understanding of these concepts and evidence the need for a precise lexicon. This would allow conservationists to cohesively describe their work and increase replicability of research across contexts.
dc.description.abstractThe terms ‘coexistence’, ‘tolerance,’ and ‘acceptance’ appear frequently in conservation literature, but lack consistent characterization, making them difficult to apply across intervention frameworks. This review aims to describe the common characterizations of these three terms using Africa-based research as a case study….
