Scientists and managers working to preserve biodiversity constantly need to make and advise management decisions, often with conflicting objectives, time pressure, limited resources and incomplete knowledge. Recognizing this complexity, conservation increasingly uses a range of principles and tools to make rational decisions in difficult situations. This four-day course provides a primer in decision analysis for conservation. It is aimed at students of ecology and evolution who seek a career in making or advising conservation decisions, independently or interacting with management agencies and practitioners. Each day combines lectures, practical training, and small group activities to enable application to real-world conservation challenges. All speakers are leading conservation experts with years of experience in delivering training to future and current scientists and practitioners.
