In this chapter in Conservation International's "Hunting and Bushmeat Utilization in the African Rain Forest", the author starts with an analysis of how to assess whether a given level of hunting will lead to the population stabilizing, then reviews the economics of hunting as one way of predicting the level of hunting that will actually occur when individuals, rather than a designated manager, decide hunting levels.
