Conservation Biology Course UNAM
The optional course on Conservation Biology is offered as part of the UNAM postgraduate program in Biological Sciences. It provides an introduction to the issues, as well as the challenges and opportunities of biodiversity conservation in Mexico and other regions. The course is a transdisciplinary space for a profound analysis of concepts and sciences involved with the conservation of the natural resources. At the end students will identify and understand the causes and will be able to confront the main problems the species or ecosystems face in which they develop their postgraduate work.
This course is taught in the second semester of the year.
Conservation Biology Course
The Latin American Course of Conservation Biology is a cutting-edge course that encourages the application of theoretical knowledge in each place where it is developed; through field work, wildlife inventories or the proposal of solutions in any particular deficiency or problem. This is why it is an itinerant course and is enriched year after year with the contributions of guest professors, students and local people.
