Applied Population Ecology

The aim of the course is to cover theoretical foundations of population ecology, and important applications of population ecology to solve real-world problems. Important theoretical concepts of population ecology are included in lectures and assigned readings to ensure a solid foundation of population ecology, but the course focuses on the many important applications of population ecology to solve real world problems (with in-depth considerations of selected aspects). The course addresses the sustainable use of harvested animal populations and specific difficulties related to conserving less common or endangered species by considering the demographic and genetic problems posed by small and/or fragmented populations. Hence, in both lectures and exercises, the course covers the population genetics, structure, demography, dynamics and stability of populations. Compulsory exercises occur. Selected methods for obtaining information required for decision-making in conservation and management (e.g. assessments of demographic structure and population size, etc.) are also covered.
