The main topics of this course are structures, development, viability analysis and model of populations. Monitoring and evaluation the results belonging to structurel variations of populations of different species, also use this results to manage populasyon and protect biodiversity.
The principle aim of this course is to familiarize graduate students to the important current topics in population ecology. A population, in ecological sense, is a group of organisms of the same species, which roughly occupy the same geographical area at the same time. Topics will include mathematical models of population growth, patterns of dispersion, population density, population harvesting, rates of natality and mortality, limits on population growth, population viability analysis, habitat fragmentation and metapopulations, predation and population cycles, competition, and estimation of population parameters. In addition, the role of the population ecology as a science on the conservation of biodiversity will be discussed
