Conservation science is concerned with phenomena that affect the maintenance, loss, and restoration of Earth?s animals, plants and ecosystem while balancing the needs of people. Using principles from ecology, population genetics, economics, political science, and other natural and social sciences, this course will examine the global changes causing widespread species extinctions via large-scale shifts in climate, habitat destruction and fragmentation, ocean acidification, overexploitation, and invasive species. We will also focus on the various conservation strategies used to conserve ecosystems and biodiversity.
