Biology 568: Conservation Ecology

Spring 2017

T/Th 10:35-11:50

Conservation Ecology provides an in-depth exposure to topics in conservation biology, especially as they relate to the application of scientific concepts to understanding causes and to building solutions to problems that threaten species and ecosystems. The course includes an introduction to quantitative tools in conservation biology such as population viability analysis, metapopulations and source-sink dynamics as well as readings in the primary literature to integrate these tools into course topics. Quantitative topics will be taught via exercises in R

For information, please contact Cheryl Schultz, The course is in-person in

Vancouver and AMS to Tri-Cities and Pullman
