Distance Learning Course:  Adaptive Management

Adaptive management is about systematically implementing management in order to achieve a desired outcome. In recent years, growing interest and effort has gone into measuring the conservation success of such programs.

This module focuses on biological monitoring (the state of the target condition), and provides an overview of the skills and knowledge required to form management goals and convert these into monitoring goals, sampling and analysis, as well as how to effectively report results to stakeholders.

Students will develop management objectives for a single harvested system and track changes in abundance of its species over time. Students are then given the opportunity to experiment with harvest strategies over time to best meet their objectives, given shifting management conditions.
