The Science: Biology: Ecology: (Wildlife Ecology and Management Ecology )


Wildlife generally means non-domesticated animals that are large enough to see. It does not usually include microfauna or ranched animals. Adapting the definition used by the ODP, Wildlife Ecology is a branch of science dealing with the interrelationships of wildlife with their own species and other animals, and with their nonliving environment. These relationships include physiological responses of individuals, structure and dynamics of populations, interactions among species, organization of biological communities, and processing of energy and matter in ecosystems. However, as a science, Wildlife Ecology generally excludes fish and fisheries. Fisheries Ecology has developed its own tradition and methodology.
