"This would be a good reference book for bio-statisticians interested in problems of estimation of animal abundance." (T.J. Rao, Sankhya, Vol. 65 (2), ) "This book introduces and surveys the various methods used to assess wildlife populations. This is a useful book.   In my recent rehashing, rebranding, and repurposing an article addressing many of the flaws in the so-called scientific arguments against animal research often made by animal rights activists and extremists, I only briefly discussed one common argument among many, namely that computer simulations can replace the use of animals in medical research by modeling human [ ].

Scientist could use this technique of predicting animal populations when trying to estimate the amount of an endangered species in a certain area. 3. Analyzing Data Compare the calculated to the actual population size. Explain why they may not agree exactly. What changes to the procedure would improve the accuracy of the activity? Methods for active population control. Animal euthanasia is often used as a final resort to controlling animal populations. In Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, the parish performed mass euthanasia on the entire animal shelter population, including 54 cats and dogs that were put to death due to a widespread disease outbreak that spread among the animals.

Abstract. In this chapter we investigate the basic spatial capture-recapture model, which we refer to as “model SCR0.” The model is a hierarchical model composed of two conditionally-related components: (1) a spatial point process describing the number and location of animal activity centers and (2) an observation model specifying capture or encounter probability as a function of the.

Analysis and Management of Animal Populations deals with the processes involved in making informed decisions about the management of animal populations.

It covers the modeling of population responses to management actions, the estimation of quantities needed in the modeling effort, and the application of these estimates and models to the development of sound management by: This lesson allows students to explore the interactions of two animal populations (wolves and moose) within an ecosystem.

Students can make their own simulations by adjusting fertility, life expectancy,and the sex ratio at birth. There are numerous activities and questions that could be explored using this simulator. How do plant and animal populations change genetically to evolve and adapt to their local environments.

How do populations grow and interact with one another through competition and predation. How does behaviour influence ecology and evolution. Introduction to Population Biology covers all these areas and more. Taking a quantitative and Darwinian perspective, the basic theory of population 4/5(1).
