Biol 330: Conservation Biology

This course sits at the intersection of the science and public policy involved with the management and conservation of plants, animals, and ecosystems. It is the role of the conservation biologist to use science effectively to make informed decisions about conservation policy. It is also important for conservation scientists to understand that conservation policy should take into consideration human needs, including health and economic development. In this course, students will develop an understanding of the factors that contribute to the decline of species, how those factors are driven by economics, and how to mitigate those factors at the local, regional, and international level. Students will also develop skills needed to assess at risk natural populations in a quantitative manner as well as critically assess past and current conservation strategies using scientific reasoning and evidence
