About Conservation Biology

Conservation Biology is a discipline concerned with the preservation, management, and restoration of biodiversity.

The field is inherently interdisciplinary and merges natural and social sciences to focus on understanding of the factors responsible for promoting and maintaining biodiversity on the one hand and the challenges of mitigating the extinction of species, preserving sensitive habitats and managing landscapes that support biodiversity on the other hand.

The Conservation Biology interdisciplinary graduate certificate involves contributions from anthropology and sociology, biological sciences, economics, geography, geology, history, and political science.
