Conservation biology takes an in-depth look at the causes and consequences of the loss of biodiversity.  The importance of biodiversity and loss of it will be examined from the genetic to the ecosystem level.  Endangered ecosystems and the eventual cause of extinctions will be examined in addition to the challenges for species management.  The roles of economic and social factors are also examined.  (Prerequisites:  BIOL111W, ENVS110W)
