Course Description:
Prerequisites: One semester of college-level biology and an ecology course or consent of instructor. This course emphasizes application of basic biological research to problems in conservation and management with a focus on science, human dimensions, and policy interface in three main disciplines/areas in conservation biology: Ecology, Evolution, and Human Dimension. Primary course themes are: effects of introduced species on biodiversity, population abundance and connectivity, units of conservation and the Endangered Species Act, and general organismal field ecology. Themes are applied to case studies chosen to illustrate general principles and important issues in conservation and to facilitate discussions with professional field and conservation biologists. We meet with professionals from government or nongovernment organizations providing a special opportunity to interactively learn by working side by side with conservation biologists, researchers, and natural resource managers from USGS, Montana FWP, US Forest Service, and the National Park Service. Instructor – Dr. Gordon Luikart, FLBS-U of Montana flbs.umt.edu/urls/people
