Conservation Biology (Vorlesung/Übung)

Inhalt: The conservation of species and ecosystems to support both the proper functioning of Ecosystems and the provisioning of natural resources to humans is a major sustainability challenge. This course provides an introduction to conservation science and its importance to sustainability. The main discussed topics will be: conceptual and historical aspects, conservation and restoration strategies, and tools for ecosystem conservation and management. The course will make links to core concepts/frameworks of sustainability science such as ecosystem services and social-ecological systems. We will have invited speakers, who work in different ecosystems around the world, to show how conservations strategies are organized in different places (with different degradation levels, social and economic situations). This weekly, theoretical component of Conservation Biology will be taught through a combination of lectures and student-led discussion. For the discussions, students will organise in groups, select a current 'hot' topic, provide relevant literature for the other students to read before the class, and facilitate a structured discussion including a short presentation. Students will also write individual essays on the significance of conservation biology for a specific sustainability topic.
