Course - Section Title Days Time Location
BIOL 335 - 01 Conservation Biology - T - R - - - 2000 - 2200 OWS 257
CRN: 30507 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Chester E. Wilson Using approaches from ecology and evolutionary biology, this course examines processes affecting populations of rare and endangered species, as well as control of introduced or pest species. Ecosystem and community-level management projects are addressed in addition to projects directly focused on individual species. Topics include population viability analysis, metapopulations and the geographical structure of populations, genetic diversity within populations, the interaction between populations ecology and population genetics, and biological control of pests. Laboratory work includes field and laboratory study of species with broad ecological implications for the ecosystems and biological communities of the Upper Midwest. Four laboratory hours per week. Prerequisites: BIOL 207 and a minimum grade of C- in BIOL 209

CRN: 41052 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Chester E. Wilson A consideration of the mechanisms of heredity, evolution, population genetics, and population ecology emphasizing hypothesis testing, case studies, and quantitative and experimental approaches to population biology. Topics include: Mendelian genetics, genetic mapping, population genetics, selection theory and the process of adaptation, speciation, macroevolution and phylogenetics, and the growth and regulation of populations. Laboratory work emphasizes techniques for data analysis, including computer simulation and modeling. Three laboratory hours per week.
