Frühjahrssemester (jährlich wiederkehrende Veranstaltung)
Genetic and evolutionary argumentation is an outstanding feature of modern conservation biology. The module equips students with the necessary background knowledge on the benefits of conservation genetics and its applications in practice. The module introduces several main theories of conservation genetics and then shows how they impact on practical work in conservation management. The module aims at a critical discussion of the role and limits of genetics in conservation and also shows where science is lacking behind practice - and vice-versa. Both animals and plants are treated.
