Graduate Education in Conservation Biology

Graduate Education in Conservation Biology Abstract: Cross‐disciplinay approaches stemming from the fields of resource management and biological science provide needed breadth for the education of conservation biologists. The growing urgency of training individuals to protect, maintain, and restore the planet's biological diversity is challenging academic institutions to overcome narrow disciplinary perspectives. Yet the development of programs in conservation biology is inhibited by long‐standing academic constraints, including disciplinary structure, communication barriers among disciplines, and lack of reward systems, research funds, model curricula, and evaluation techniques for cross‐disciplinary work Descriptions of 16 graduate programs in conservation biology indicate that academia is responding to the challenge. Housed in both resource management and biological science departments, these programs offer new degree options as well as new cross‐disciplinary courses, field classes, and research projects. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Conservation Biology Wiley

Abstract

Abstract: Cross‐disciplinay approaches stemming from the fields of resource management and biological science provide needed breadth for the education of conservation biologists. The growing urgency of training individuals to protect, maintain, and restore the planet's biological diversity is challenging academic institutions to overcome narrow disciplinary perspectives. Yet the development of programs in conservation biology is inhibited by long‐standing academic constraints, including disciplinary structure, communication barriers among disciplines, and lack of reward systems, research funds, model curricula, and evaluation techniques for cross‐disciplinary work Descriptions of 16 graduate programs in conservation biology indicate that academia is responding to the challenge. Housed in both resource management and biological science departments, these programs offer new degree options as well as new cross‐disciplinary courses, field classes, and research projects.
