OEB 109. Conservation Ecology and Practice

The conservation of land and waters has become a major tool in determining the patterns of land use, conserving biodiversity, combating global change, and ensuring that the benefits of nature are secured for society. With a focus on the U.S., this course will examine the history and changes in conservation rationale and approach, the ecological theory and research that helps guide conservation planning and execution, and the policies, finances, and practice that enable land conservation to be a powerful agent of landscape change. Field trips will focus on case studies and discussions with practitioners engaged in New England conservation from Boston to extremely rural landscapes.
