The ongoing loss of biological diversity is a major problem globally. The purpose of conservation biology is to understand the processes and to find ways of reducing this loss. You will be given a broad introduction to the subject, anchored in practical work, with a focus on conservation ecology and conservation genetics. Understanding the processes that control the survival of populations is a key element, and you will gain knowledge in vulnerability analyses and the breeding of threatened animals. The course will be given in English during March–June.
Course information will appear soon on this page. Until then, information can be found on the department website.
