Conservation Biology (BISC 309, Spring 2012) David Green is teaching this course in Spring 2011
The course begins with an overview of the rational for Conservation Biology, including an examination of the nature and value of biodiversity, the drivers of global change and threats to biodiversity and the decline of species into an extinction vortex. The second half of the course will concentrate on population viability, the spatial dynamics of habitat loss and the fragmentation consequences for species persistence. The final section will focus on solutions, including protected areas, restoration and species reintroduction. The course will be split into two lecture series: a 2 hour theory lecture on Tuesday, with shorter guest lectures on Thursday from conservation scientists on the conservation threats, problems and solutions.
