BIOL 4310

Applications of Population Ecology in Fisheries and Wildlife

(Lab Required) (Formerly ZOOL 4850) The material introduced in BIOL 3310 (ZOOL 3680, 022.348) is developed into the quantitative analyses of field data to form a basis for conservation and management. Topics covered include: surplus harvest models, virtual population analysis, spatial population modeling, bioeconomics, and quantitative adaptive management. Concepts are reinforced through tutorials. Prerequisite: BIOL 3310 (ZOOL 3680, 022.348).
