This unit will develop student knowledge of the principles and paradigms in conservation biology, ecological models, and adaptive management. Integration with a field-based, real-world conservation case study will provide a direct link between students, the complexities of conservation problems and possible future careers. Each will be illustrated with case studies from Australia and internationally, as appropriate.
On completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. demonstrate an advanced understanding of biological conservation;
2. use basic skills to incorporate ecological theory tools in the management of species conservation;
3. conduct a detailed appraisal and analysis of real-world problems of conservation relevance;
4. demonstrate well-developed scientific thinking and writing skills and ability to work as part of a team.
4 hours per week.
