課程目標
In recent decades, many environmental problems (e.g. pollution, global warming, hazardous wastes and ozone depletion) have arisen resulted from the rapid population growth and extensive economic development. Among all these environmental threats, the increasingly rapid loss of biological diversity is the most serious problem. It is because this loss is irreversible on a human timescale and will reduce the options available to all future human generations. Conservation Biology is the science of preserving biological diversity. It is a newly developed, applied, mission-orientated, multidisciplinary science bringing together elements from ecology, genetics, forestry, animal husbandry, resource management and many other fields. Conservation biology is obviously the most essential knowledge for all students who intends to work in a field directly related to biological conservation, but it is also relevant to almost any biological or environmental career.
