Literature Review Exercise

Instructions

Literature Review Exercise – DUE Week 5

For the literature review exercise (i.e., this assignment), download the attached template and then provide in each of the 5 main sections at least 2 references in APA format that you will use in your Wildlife Management Plan. (No, you are not required to use these exact references for your Wildlife Management Plan.) Please explain in 1-2 sentences for each of the 5 sections why they are applicable to your Wildlife Management Plan (For further information, please see the instructions for the Final Plan). In total, you must have at least 10 references, 5 of which must be from peer-reviewed journal articles and none can be duplicates (i.e., ≥ 10 unique references). Note, these are minimum numbers and thus it might be wise (hint, hint) to include a few additional peer-reviewed journal articles in case you misidentify them. How do you find peer-reviewed journal articles? See this FAQ in the APUS Library (just ensure you select peer-review and journal article only, not only scholarly). What’s a peer-reviewed article? See this FAQ in the APUS library. Finally, there is a new resource, [email protected], that has an enormous amount of information on the topic and research in general.

For the final plan due in Week 8, you must demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the selected species, its habitat requirements, natural history and ecology. Then using what you have learned in this course, develop a comprehensive management plan that will bring the population of the select species back from the brink of threatened or endangered status. You must clearly identify the factors or threats affecting your species of choice, link the management actions you propose to the threats the species faces, explain your methods of management, offer support as to why you chose the methods you did, and explain how you will monitor the implementation of your proposed plan to measure its success. Cite all of your sources correctly in APA format within the text and at the end of your plan

  

REFERENCES

Note that you must have 10 different citations 5 of which must be peer-reviewed journal articles, I use the same two simply to illustrate what is required. Please also paste your references in the table at the end of this template and indicate whether it is a peer-reviewed journal or not. This allows me to tell you exactly which references if any are incorrect or need formatting corrections.
