Human activities, such as land cultivation, deforestation and urbanization, have large and unequivocally negative impacts on wildlife populations. In this online course students will be introduced to contemporary anthropogenic changes from around the globe that directly cause wildlife population declines and biodiversity loss. Lectures will ground students in key ecological concepts underlying modern day threats to wildlife populations. Discussions and case study exercises will allow students to explore major conflicts between human and wildlife populations, largely driven by resource demands, that challenge policymaking and species-specific management plans.
