Content

The objectives of this unit are to enable students to develop a strong understanding of theoretical population ecology. Students will cover areas such as: animals as individuals, animals in populations, dispersal, resources, limiting factors and regulating mechanisms, competition, predation and population estimation. An understanding of these areas will then be used to examine how we currently manage wildlife populations. Different approaches to wildlife management will be discussed in relation to theoretical population ecology. Students will then be encouraged to critically examine our current management practices and attempt to develop their own philosophy towards the management of our wildlife resources.
