Conservation Biology

Moose - by Emilie KisslerThere is  rapid decline of established biological systems around the world. Conservation biology is tied closely to ecology in researching the dispersal, migration, demographics, effective population size, inbreeding depression, and minimum population viability of rare or endangered species.

Conservation biology is concerned with phenomena that affect the maintenance, loss, and restoration of biodiversity and the science of sustaining evolutionary processes that engender genetic, population, species, and ecosystem diversity.

Memorial University offers courses in Conservation Biology which examines how biological and geographical princicples can be applied to conserving biological diversity in the natural world under conditions of exploitation and habitat loss.


Here are the class projects from the respective courses:
