AEC 245 Global Conservation Ecology Section: 001
This course provides an introduction to the scientific principles and concepts that are the foundation of conservation biology. A diversity of topics will be covered, including 1) causes of extinction, 2) the impacts of habitat fragmentation, small population sizes, and exotic species, 3) evidence based nature preserve and corridor design, and strategies for protecting and restoring endangered species and ecosystems. Students will build on their conceptual and analytical skills and gain real-world decision making through collaborative research projects, in which they will gather data and apply their findings to develop climate-smart conservation approaches.
