WLE 479 - Wildlife Conservation in a Changing World

The course will focus on the main drivers of global change (e.g. land-use change, climate change) and how they impact the behavior, ecology and population dynamics of wild animals. Each driver will be analyzed for both the causes (e.g., what are the effects of land-use change) and the mitigation (e.g. habitat restoration). The course will contain a mix of lectures, class/home exercises, discussions of relevant journal articles, student presentations and production of a short video.
