Applied ecological conservation is a subfield within ecology, which considers the application of the science of ecology to real-world (usually management) questions. This subject is intended to allow students to develop an understanding of the main ecological concepts fundamental to conservation theory, and to present tools and models that are important to the application of conservation ecology. This will give students the necessary theoretical and applied skills required for them to assist in the management of ecosystems, habitats or species. As this subject discusses a range of tools and models, there is a statistical and mathematical component. There is no residential school associated with the subject. In completing this subject students are able to use initiative and decision making skills to make professional judgements about the implementation of conservation strategies in a variety of contexts.
