BIO 064 - Biodiversity

Course Units: 1
Habitat degradation, global change and biodiversity loss threaten natural ecosystems.  This course examines our scientific understanding of ecology, genetics and evolution to investigate how these areas of study are applied to develop management strategies to mitigate environmental threats.  We will draw upon historical and modern examples from the Albany Pine Bush, Adirondacks, National Parks and endangered species.  In addition, students will learn to construct and apply simulation models to evaluate conservation strategies and appreciate the dynamic nature of science as it relates to the development and application of scientific knowledge in conservation.  (Staff) Corequisite(s): BIO 064L CC: SCLB Lecture/Lab Hours One lab every other week.
