BIOL 3201 - Conservation Biology I

4 hours

Prerequisites: BIOL 1108  with a grade of “C-” or better.   This course is about the nascent discipline of conversation biology that emerged in the 1980’s as a response to biodiversity loss around the world. Conversation biology is an interdisciplinary field that incorporates sciences (e.g., genetics, ecology, wildlife management) with the human dimension (e,g., politics, economics, ethics). The explicit goal of this discipline is to conserve biodiversity at all levels of organization from genetics to populations, species, communities and ecosystems. In this course, we will explore both the theoretical and applied aspects of conversation on the local, national and international scales. We will employ lectures, discussions, guest speakers, labs, field trips, and reading and writing assignments.
