Analysis and Management of Animal Populations – Modeling, Estimation, and Decision Making :: This book deals with the assessment and management of animal populations. It is an attempt to pull together key elements of what has become a truly overwhelming body of theory and practice in population biology and to add by way of synthesis to our understanding of animal populations and their conservation. Such an effort requires perambulations through the sometimes strange worlds of mathematical modeling, probability theory, statistical estimation, dynamic optimization, and even logical inference. Happily, one need not establish residence in any of these places to absorb what is needed for the journey. On the other hand, one is well served by a visit and by spending at least some time exploring the terrain.
