Using the population ecology approach to interest group representation to develop political strategy
This study utilizes theories from the population ecology and political strategy to make inferences about the mobilization and maintenance of gay and lesbian interest groups. Interest organizations typically have high mortality rates and are constantly replaced by new organizations. By noticing population ecology trends throughout the history of a specific population of interest organization, the entrepreneurs of a specific organization will be better able to develop an effective mobilization and maintenance strategy to keep their organization alive in the long run and allow the organization to effect more change in the broader political environment.
