ESRM 313 - Conservation Biology

by Sean Anderson

To listen to an audio podcast, mouse over the title and click Play. Open iTunes to download and subscribe to iTunes U collections.


This course explores issues surrounding the conservation of our biological resources. Topics to be covered span species-, population-, and ecosystem-level challenges with particular attention to biodiversity, the fragmentation of ecological communities, extinction, invasive species, and Protected Areas. The interplay between natural and social systems and the ramifications of management decisions are integrated throughout the course. While our discussions will take place primarily within a biological setting, we will also touch upon the importance of understanding the particular milieu (e.g. legal, bureaucratic, economic, etc.) within which a given management action needs be carried out.

Great Stuff

Very informative, even for an old coot like myself. I particularly liked the historical information. Sometimes talks a bit quick, but nice job overall. I recommend the Mountain Lion lecture, History of Conservation lectures and the fragmentation lectures (especially about Road Kill). I never knew there was a university out on the Channel Islands. Hope the boat rides out are easy!
