ENS 331 BIOGEOGRAPHY AND CONSERVATION

Humans are living in a period that is commonly thought of as a 6th mass extinction. Biodiversity is declining at the fastest rate in recorded human history, and the consequences of this loss will be profound, both for the planet and for the people who live here. It is impossible to understand, and correct, biodiversity loss without understanding the spatial context in which declines and extinctions occur. This course will focus on conservation through a spatial lens. Understanding the relationship between geographic place and biodiversity will be the major theme throughout this course.   This class will count for non-lab science.
