Risk Management Population Simulation Model

Wildlife management is considered to be not so much a matter of managing wildlife as it is managing human activities. Human activities can place wildlife populations at risk by reducing numbers and by reducing rates of survival and recruitment. Often the activity of wildlife management is simply identifying and mitigating a negative impact on a given population. On other occasions wildlife management is identifying limits to human activities that will keep the impacts to acceptable levels. RISKMAN is a tool for researchers and managers to assist in quantifying the risk that human activities pose to wildlife populations. This tool is a generalized simulation model that is structured to employ population parameters that can be readily measured in the field.
