Challenge Team Abstract
The project objective is to determine the effects that the killing of coyotes by farmers and ranchers have on the coyote's ecological system. To accomplish this, an object oriented C++ program will be implemented to calculate the food consumptions of coyotes, their prey, and other animals that are involved in the coyotes' ecosystem. This will require a function for each component of the bionetwork. The main function will represent the coyote's ecosystem as a whole. This project should determine to what extent the coyote population could be reduced, before there are major effects upon ecological system of the given area.
