This graduate course will focus on the concepts and theories in ecology that have the greatest potential for conserving biological diversity in a changing climate. The recurrent question will be: how can we apply ecology to improve conservation of species and biodiversity as climate changes? There are obvious solutions to most conservation problems that ultimately stem from rapid human population growth and associated habitat destruction. In this class, we will focus on those issues but more extensively on identifying creative applications of ecology and climate science that will mitigate human impacts on biodiversity in a world in which climate is changing.
