BIOL 5098 1.50: Conservation Biology

Course is not offered  2017 - 2018

The question of what is "rare" is fundamental to conservation biology. Decisions about which organisms to protect (and where ) are based on population levels. Different kinds of organisms must be sampled in different ways, and the data used to call a fish rare, may be quite different than those used to make the same decision about a terrestrial plant or mammal.
