About the course

The course discusses different habitat types and their biodiversity. We focus on the situation in Sweden but also discuss international examples. We identify damages on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and discuss how they can be rectified. We emphasise the importance of evidence based conservation practices. We have a close cooperation with active professionals in the field (e.g. at regional and municipality levels) who give us insights in nature conservation in practice via field trips, seminars, and practical exercises. The course contains GIS (Geographic Information System) exercises relevant to nature conservation.
