Pub Abstract: 

This paper attempts to integrate wildlife-related ecologic and economic variables into an econometric model. The model reveals empirical evidence of the presumed interdependence of human-wildlife and the holistic nature of humanitys relationship to the ecosystem. Human use of biologic resources varies not only with income, education, and population, but also with sustainability of humankinds action relative to the quality and quantity of the supporting ecological base.
