This course in wildlife ecology will teach you about evolution and ecology. You will study the essential concepts of an ecosystem, biogeography evolution, modern population and community ecology. With this, you will learn about the impacts of humans on ecology, human population growth, sustainable development, plastic and biodiversity and the components of climate change. You will then be introduced to the study of ecotoxicology in detail.

Description

In this free online course in wildlife ecology, you will be introduced to evolution and ecology. You will study the essential concepts of an ecosystem, biogeography evolution, modern population & community ecology. It will then explain the role of fitness in evolution. The course then describes the difference between intraspecific & interspecific synergies. You will look at different kinds of behavioural ecologies that are seen in the wild including foraging. Do you know the impact human population growth has had on wildlife population growth? In this course, you will study theories of population growth and regulation, and population parameters and demographic techniques.

We will then discusses the specific traits that we can discern from a community. You will examine how a particular change happens in a community and how a community forms. We will then continue into the analysis of geographic distributions, dispersal and anthropogenic factors including some push and pulls elements. You will also study the impacts of human beings on ecology, food requirements, and sustainable development. Further, in this course, you will understand the concept of plastic pollution and biodiversity, components of climate change and the working of the climate system in detail. Have you always wanted to know how plastic affects wildlife miles away from where you disposed of it? Or were you simply unaware that this could be a potential impact? This course is here to teach you the problems we all face daily when it comes to pollution and our world's wildlife. Along with this, you will learn about optimal yield problems as well as numerical analysis of population size and the weight of stock. Then, you will analyze the differences between controlled and uncontrolled pests. At the end of this course, you will study ecotoxicology, pollution management, and restoration ecology.

This course is aimed at meeting the interests and needs of students who wish to build their skills in environmental biology or ecology. So, why wait? Start the course today, and improve your knowledge of wildlife ecology.
