Human–wildlife interactions in urban areas vary on a continuum of positive to negative, frequent to infrequent and from significant to minor. They may also differ between the human and wildlife participants. Understanding and therefore managing or mitigating negative impacts and maximising positive interactions is both challenging and a priority.

The editors of this Special Issue have brought together papers from a wide range of taxa from a range of global regions that discuss a variety of interactions that impact on wildlife as well as humans.
