Fish and wildlife management
Fish and wildlife management can be improved by animal ecology research. At SLU, the research includes wildlife dynamics connected to feeding, ecological aspects on animal transfers and feeding, interactions between animals and plants, the effects of climate change on animals, humans and ecosystems. In the management hunting and fishing is included.
