Conservation biology has emerged as a field of study from a synthesis of the ecological, demographic, genetic and societal risks faced by small natural populations. This major equips students with skills in fundamental biology, in the ecology of populations and communities, in population genetics and in the legal conservation framework to enable them to work in this area.
