How do we study how animals affect eachother?

    The field of study that most directly translates to the study of “how animals affect each other” is Ecology. Ecology is a comparatively new field (a subset of biology, really) that specifically addresses the way life forms, and their environments, interact. It’s a study of connections. To actually DO this work, the methods vary greatly. Oftentimes, population dynamics are a key part of ecology: measurements of population size, death rates, birth rates, immigration rates, etc. The list goes on. Modern ecology also tends to make extensive use of mathematical modeling to predict how populations will react to changes in their environment or in their population statistics. It’s a VERY broad field, and many other disciplines also touch upon the question of “how animals affect one another”.
