Course Description: This course explores what can be done to repair damage to the planet’s species, communities, and natural ecosystems. Beginning with an understanding of natural patterns in biological diversity, students chart human impacts on the natural world through overexploitation, habitat destruction, population declines, loss of genetic diversity, extinctions, invasions of exotic species, and climate change. The course then looks at tools to reverse these problems, including designing networks of nature reserves, economic incentives, habitat restoration, and climate adaptation. Lectures are complemented by lively discussions of contemporary conservation issues, tutorials with conservationists working in a range of jobs, and assessments that stimulate application of intuition and knowledge to solve or explore conservation problems.
