Conservation Biology

BIOL 220
Fall 2006 not offered
Certificates: Environmental Studies

This course will focus on the biology of conservation, rather than cultural aspects of conservation. This will entail a sophisticated understanding of the fundamental processes of diversification, coexistence, and population persistence. From this basis, we will explore important conservation issues such as climate change, habitat loss and alteration, food web alteration, invasive species, and population viability. We will also cover some current research methods used in conservation biology, and employ some of them in field projects.
