Species live in populations. In order to understand how species survive in a changing world we need to understand their populations. The course gives a foundation in population ecology and genetics that is essential for conservation, restoration and invasive species management. You will develop field skills used to quantify populations and how they change, and learn key aspects of population genetics relevant to molecular ecology. You’ll gain an understanding of population dynamics and develop skills in the analysis and interpretation of data in the study of population ecology and genetics.
