520    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 decisions. The book 
       synthesizes and integrates in a single volume the methods 
       associated with these themes, as they apply to ecological 
       assessment and conservation of animal populations. Key 
       Features* Integrates population modeling, parameter 
       estimation and decision-theoretic approaches to management
       in a single, cohesive framework * Provides authoritative, 
       state-of-the-art descriptions of quantitative approaches 
       to modeling, estimation and decision-making * Emphasizes 
       the role of mathematical modeling in the conduct of 
       science and management* Utilizes a unifying biological 
       context, consistent mathematical notation, and numerous 
       biological examples
