Wildlife Fundamentals

  • Approaches to Wildlife Management:

  • 1) Preservation (“hands off”)

  • 2) Conservation (“use wisely”)

  • 3) Management (“manipulate”)

  • Goals of management:

  • 1) population increase

  • 2) population decrease

  • 3) maintain population

  • 4) harvest population on sustained yield basis


Land to manage l.jpg
“Land” to Manage

2.3 billion acres in U.S.

741 million acres in public ownership

- 336 MA = BLM

- 189 MA = USFS

- 86 MA = USFWS

- 68 MA = NPS

- 13 MA = U.S. Army

Wildlife Fundamentals

  • Single-species vs. Ecosystem Mgt

  • Coarse-filter vs. Fine-filter

adaptive resource management: given current scientific understanding,

1) implement mgt. strategy, but

2) monitor effects and adjust

Habitat13 l.jpg
Habitat

  • Habitat from an evolutionary perspective

    • Species distribution relative to habitat dist’n

    • Climatic events

  • Pleistocene Epoch & dist’n of modern species

  • Evolutionary underpinnings

  • Adaptation & Evolution for habitat


Concept of habitat selection l.jpg
Concept of Habitat Selection

  • Wildlife perceiving correct configuration of habitat needed for survival – differences based on age/experience/chance? – hierarchy to decision process

  • Niche concept (time/place/functional role) & habitat selection

Testing the Hutchinsonian Niche Concept of Habitat Selection

  • James – work with birds in Arkansas…quantified habitat relationships

  • How do birds select habitat?
