• This course examines ecological concepts at the population level; population parameters, vital statistics, size, growth, competition, predation, bionomic strategies, parasitism etc. It exposes students to the process of making predictions about population changes in response to variations in biotic and abiotic factors of the environment. The course is divided into topics which are chronologically arranged from simple to complex and which link concepts in a way that is designed to help students build upon previous knowledge and appreciate the inter-relatedness of each concept to others.


    Aims

    The course will help students appreciate and view populations as a dynamic unit of organisms living together. Students will be able to apply the knowledge gained in natural resource (wildlife, fisheries and forest) management and in managing disease and vector problems at the population level thus preparing them to work in the conservation and public health sectors.
