Submitted by editor on 9 April 2021.

I am Hideharu Tsukada, the new subject editor for Wildlife Biology. I am very excited to see and discuss the latest research results from all of you!

I received my PhD from Hokkaido University in 1997 studying the foraging behavior of red foxes and their relationship with humans. After that, I joined the Graduate School of Veterinary Medicine, Hokkaido University as a postdoctoral research fellow in a project on the control of echinococcosis, a parasite disease transmitted by foxes. In 2000, I started working as a researcher at the NARO Institute of Livestock and Grassland Science in Tochigi Prefecture, where I was engaged in research on animal damage control in grasslands, mainly focusing on sika deer. From 2015, I have moved to my current position at Azabu University, where I am engaged in a wide range of research on the foraging ecology of medium-sized carnivores as well as their management and conservation.

In my time away from work, I enjoy collecting insects, making sweets, and raising reptiles with my three children.
