An introduction to systematic methods of collection, analysis and reporting of field and laboratory data for practical applications in the field of wildlife conservation biology. Lectures outline the quantitative nature of conservation research and the value of robust sampling strategies and experimental methods. Some knowledge of basic statistics is required. Sampling design for field studies will be emphasised, and the elements of statistical tests, including linear modelling, will be considered in the context of their implementation and reporting standards against legislative and industry requirements. Practical work will complement methods introduced in lectures and involves use of computers and software in addition to field data collection at local sites. Workshops will be used to provide specialised expertise in Wildlife Conservation techniques.
