Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Wildlife management is the science of manipulating wild populations to achieve a specific goal. Goals include sustained yields while maintaining the integrity of the harvested populations, increasing survival probability of endangered populations, managing ecosystems, and control of overabundant, pest, diseased and invasive populations. Key advancements in the past decade were in the realm of population assessment, focusing on density, survival and viability, as well as applied behavioral ecology and intra-population variability.
