Author(s): Dolbeer, Richard A. | Abstract: To justify and defend lethal or reproductive control programs to solve vertebrate pest problems, wildlife biologists must have a sound understanding of the population status and dynamics of the problem species. Models are essential to project how populations will respond to proposed management actions, providing a scientific foundation to counter the emotional debates that often arise. Four population models (PM1 to PM4) for predicting population… Expand
Evaluating Population Management Scenarios: Crunching the Numbers before Going to the Field
Effolts to mitigate wildlife-human conflicts tpically involve management of unacceptably abundant populations. Increasingly, however, reduction of dense or increasing populations of certain wildExpand
The Role of Research in Expanded Regional Management of Double-Crested Cormorants
The number of double-crested cormorants (Phalacrocorax auritus) breeding in the Great Lakes states and provinces has increased during recent decades. Their abundance and foraging habits have thrustExpand
Ecology, impacts and management of pest birds
TLDR
It is demonstrated that an understanding of a pest’s ecology, efficient measures of impacts, and thorough evaluations of surveillance and management strategies are essential for effectively managing their economic, environmental and health-related impacts. Expand
Dynamics of the double-crested cormorant population on Lake Ontario
TLDR
It was found that cormorant population growth on Lake Ontario was most sensitive to survival of birds about to turn age 3 and older, and it was demonstrated that survival of older birds exerts more effective population control than changes in fertility. Expand

The relationship of animal protection interests to animal damage management: Historic paths, contemporary concerns and the uncertain future
Author(s): Hadidian, John | Abstract: More than a decade ago Schmidt (1989) called for consideration of animal welfare to become a "first-order" decision rule in wildlife management concerns,Expand

Author(s): Werner, Scott J. | Abstract: Several North American waterbird species were negatively affected by compromised environmental quality by the mid-twentieth century. Double-crested cormorantExpand
Wildlife Demography: Population Processes, Analytical Tools and Management Applications
The purpose of this text is to provide a broad overview of wildlife demography and explain how demographic approaches shed light on wildlife conservation and management issues. First, we summarizeExpand

TLDR
The relationship between numbers of piscivorous birds reported killed under U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service permits at aquaculture facilities in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania and species population trends within the respective states was examined. Expand
MOVEMENTS OF URBAN CANADA GEESE: IMPLICATIONS FOR NICARBAZIN TREATMENT PROGRAMS
