he article presents a study which determines the habitat pattern of European bison across its former range in Europe. The study uses herd range maps to assess the habitat suitability of 36 free-ranging bison herds and compare it with maps of land cover, livestock density, as well as agricultural constraints to identify potential conservation conflicts. The study found out that habitat occurred outside protected areas, which promotes potential for conservation conflict.
