Population Ecology and Species Protection is an up-to-date course covering the most important aspects of population ecology. It discusses field and laboratory data to illustrate the fundamental laws of population ecology, explores single-species population growth and self-limitation, metapopulations, and a broad range of interspecific interactions including parasite-host, predator-prey, and plant-herbivore. The course keeps the mathematics as simple as possible, using a careful step-by-step approach and including graphs and other visual aids to help understanding.

The course offers an introduction in the basics of population ecology:

- various models of one species population dynamics (without/with age structure, overlapping/nonoverlapping generations),
- interactions between species (predator-prey, competition, resource-consumer,
- spread of infectious diseases (interactions between numbers of susceptible, infected and recovered individuals),
- dynamics of metapopulations (several populations of the same species connected by migration),
- effects of landscape connectivity of species survival,
- island biogeography and its applications in species protection,
- species-area, species-abundance relationships and their use in design of nature reserves.

The course is planned as 2 hrs per week, but scheduled 14:50-18:00. This is because we will have only 6 sessions per 4 teaching hours (with 10 mins breaks after 90 mins, of course) plus 1 session per 2 hours, instead of 13 sessions per 2 teaching hours.

IMPORTANT: The sessions will take place on the following dates:

February 17, 15:40-18:50;
February 24, 15:40-18:50;
March 2, 15:40-18:50;
March 23, 15:40-18:50;
March 30, 15:40-18:50;
April 6, 15:40-18:50; (lecturer: Dr. Reif);
April 20, 15:40-17:10;


The exam will take place on April 20, 17:20-18:20 in room B12 (more details about the exam during the first lecture).
