ENV 345 - Conservation Biology

Three Credits
Every Other Fall

Conservation Biology is the study of the factors affecting the maintenance, loss, and restoration of biodiversity. This course gives students an overview of the major threats facing biodiversity, as well as the scientific methods and biological principles behind conservation management. We’ll explore common models, tools, and techniques used to conserve biodiversity (e.g., reserve design, population viability analysis, sustainable harvest models, meta·population models, etc.) with the goal of preparing students for science·based careers in Conservation Biology.

Prerequisite(s)/Restriction(s): ENV 200  and BIO 102
