This module’s goal is to introduce and evaluate a variety of common strategies for harvesting wild populations. The module includes reasons for harvesting, theoretical foundations for maximum sustainable yield and harvest strategies, age- and sex-biased harvests, and effects of harvesting on target and non-target wildlife. The module contains two case studies and a spreadsheet-based exercise suitable for either demonstration or laboratory use. The module also contains references to supplementary material that is freely available on the web.
