    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.
