There?s a popular axiom in science that ?all biology is now conservation biology.? This statement is telling in two ways: First, in the modern era it is hard to find a biological system that is untouched by humankind. Second, perhaps more than any other discipline conservation biology is highly integrative, bringing together such disparate fields as ecology, evolutionary biology, public policy, and sociology. In this course, we will lay the foundation for any field within the natural sciences or environmental studies. Specific topics that we will cover include the status of biodiversity, the threats facing biodiversity, the importance of ecosystem services, conservation policy, design and management of protected areas, and habitat restoration.
