POPULATION MANAGEMENT FOR WILDLIFE AND FISHERIES

WCON405

Description

Wildlife managers influence wildlife species using three ‘levers’: habitat, populations, or humans. This course addresses the population dimension of wildlife management. Students will explore how wildlife biologists measure and monitor demographic parameters of populations, including field techniques and analysis methods, with a focus on understanding strengths, weaknesses, and appropriate use of each technique. Students will consider ecological concepts and management techniques used to manipulate wildlife populations including sustainable harvest, management of threatened and endangered species, and control of overabundant species.
