BIO-3290 Conservation Biology

3 credits

Prerequisite: BIO-2340, an upper-level ENV course, or permission of instructor.

This course will integrate many disciplines in biology, environmental science, and public policy that are traditionally covered as separate courses. Biological concepts include ecology, limnology, forest ecology, evolution, and toxicology. Chemical concepts will be applied to discussions of toxic substances and environmental contaminants. This course will take an interdisciplinary approach to solving conservation problems.
