Climate, food, water, shelter and density are limiting factors that shape the demographic patterns of large herbivore populations. Human intervention can however decouple population dynamics from spatiotemporal variations in some of these factors. A population should respond demographically when management ceases to intervene, and should do so in a manner predicted by theory. We assessed this prediction using the African elephants (Loxodonta africana) of the Kruger National Park as a case study… CONTINUE READING
