Wildlife Ecology and Management

Wildlife management involves the application of ecological knowledge to seek a balance between the needs of wildlife species (typically terrestrial vertebrates) and human values. Political, social, and economic factors influence the methods and success of wildlife management in the stewardship and conservation of wildlife populations and their habitats. Wildlife ecology interfaces with disciplines in the natural and social sciences to address questions about managing wildlife populations.
