BIO 320 - Conservation Biology

4.00 credits.
Conservation biology is an applied scientific discipline devoted to understanding and preserving the world’s biodiversity. We will examine in lecture and through a series of case studies how basic ecological principles are being applied to preserve biodiversity. The case studies will highlight conservation at the species, community, ecosystem, and biosphere levels and societal aspects of conservation. We will also experience local biodiversity via field trips, civic engagement, and species identification sessions. *Prerequisite(s): BIO 112  or permission of the instructor. Spring semester, alternate years.
