Conservation Biology investigates the causes and consequences of loss of biodiversity. Species are first placed into their ecological context. Then global and regional patterns of species extinction are discussed. The mechanisms that precipitate loss and eventually cause extinction are examined through modeling and statistical exercises. Students share in the responsibility for covering the material by presenting selected topics.
