Certificate in Environmental Impact Assessment - Biodiversity Conservation System Design MGMT 4047   Biodiversity Conservation System Design
Biodiversity conservation systems are increasingly necessary as human activities dominate the landscape, seascape and freshwater ecosystmes. Precise prescriptions for conservation design are evolving. The theory and practice of conservation system design are explored through lectures, student presentations, discussions and exercises, as an active learning module involving the students, the instructor and the broader community. Topics include representation of ecological systems, focal species, population viability, habitat suitability, landscape ecology, connectivity, road ecology and planning for species shifts in response to climate change.
