BI 219 - Conservation Biology


Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 3
Credit Hours: 4

This course is an introduction to the principles and modern practice of Conservation Biology. Lectures will be focused on examining the biological implementation and consequences of conservation, wildlife management, and ecosystem processes. Laboratory activities will not only explore the primary literature focused on recent developments in biodiversity studies, but will be focused on the application of population assessment models to biological datasets. Select field trips to local restoration and conservation areas will enhance an understanding of applying these conservation principles to modern global dilemmas. Prerequisite(s): BI 101  and BI 102 , or BI 111 , BI 112 , and BI 113 .
