Skoglig naturvårdsbiologi

Kursen behandlar ämnet bevarandebiologi (naturvårdsbiologi) med fokus på dess tillämpning i skogslandskap. Undervisningen består av en blandning av självstudier och olika undervisningsaktiviteter: föreläsningar, litteraturseminarier, projekt, exkusioner och övningar.


Kursen består av flera delar: Naturliga och mänskliga störningsregimer, Skogens biologiska mångfald och hur man mäter den, Naturvårdsåtgärder i skogen, Viktiga ekologiska begrepp i bevarandebiologin, Bevarandeåtgärder för enskilda arter, Globala förändringar, Naturvården i ett samhälleligt sammanhang samt Multifunktionella skogar och urban ekologi. Varje del består såväl av föreläsningar som minst en annan undervisningsform (t.ex. litteraturseminarier, projekt och övningar). Litteraturseminarier är viktiga för att fördjupa ämneskunskap och vetenskapligt tänkande.


Kursen ges som distanskurs. Litteraturseminarier, inlämningsuppgifter, muntliga presentationer, exkursioner och skriftlig tentamen är obligatoriska.


Information från kursledaren

Most welcome to the course in Forest Conservation Biology!

The course is a distance course, but with one mandatory physical meeting. We will meet in Uppsala for two full days of excursions 9-10 November. Please book these dates in you calendar already now!

The distance teaching consists of several types of acivities, including:

1) Literature seminars, discussions and exercises, where you meet teachers and fellow students online at a specified time, through Zoom.

2) Recorded lectures that you can follow when it suits you, but often there is also a scheduled follow-up discussion session

3) Assignments where you work independently or in small groups, and hand in before a given deadline.

Please note that some of the scheduled ("live") activites are mandatory!

If you have any questions regarding the course, please do not hesitate to contact me.
