    Syllabus

    Conservation Biology and Genetics employs advanced understanding of ecology and genetics to address conservation problems most obviously species extinction and the loss of biodiversity. It is also concerned with the social aspects of biological conservation. Topics covered will include principles and paradigms in conservation biology, ecological models, wildlife genetics, 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 employers.
