ENST 389 - Conservation Biology & Policy

Our world is facing unprecedented pressures from global warming, habitat loss, pollution and a myriad of other anthropogenic drivers that are negatively impacting species and ecosystems. The biological discipline that addresses the impacts of these drivers on biodiversity and ecosystem function is Conservation Biology. The step after the identification of a conservation issue is to determine conservation priorities for addressing it, and then formulating evidence-based policy. Students learn the sustainable management of socio-ecological systems using conservation biology and policy studies. Framed around a case study, a long-term research project in the Cardelus lab on the myriad impacts of high deer density on the Village and Town of Hamilton.
