Conservation Biology

As an interdisciplinary science, the focus of this course is the conservation of biodiversity at the levels of genetics, reproductive populations, species, communities, ecosystems, watersheds and air sheds, and the global biosphere. This course covers causative factors for the loss of biodiversity and the consequences for the future of systems stability and resilience. Current applications of evolutionary and ecological theory form the foundation for strategies and skills aimed at developing and implementing sound management policies. While human dimensions are important in natural resource management, this course emphasizes critical thinking and science-based problem solving. Also listed as ENV 415. Offered online only.
