PROGRAMMA PROGRAM

History of marine conservation. Marine biodiversity. Threats to marine biodiversity: loss of biodiversity, vulnerability, extinction, biological invasions. Endangered, vulnerable, rare, endemic and priority species. Ecology and conservation of long-lived marine animals. Marine biodiversity and ecosystem functioning relationships. Consequences of species loss on the provisioning of ecosystem's goods and services for human wellbeing. Ecosystem based management for sustainable use of marine resources. Political, legal and ethical issues of concern in marine conservation biology.

MODALITÀ DI SVOLGIMENTO DELL'ESAME DEVELOPMENT OF THE EXAMINATION
Modalità di valutazione dell'apprendimento.

The student will demonstrate his/her expertise by an oral examination on at least three questions.


Criteri di valutazione dell'apprendimento.

During the oral exam students must demonstrate that they have acquired knowledge about key concepts of ecology and policy relevant to marine conservation issues, threatened and vulnerable marine species and habitats, consequences of biodiversity loss on the provisioning of marine ecosystems' goods and services, strategies and tools for the sustainable management of marine resources. The questions will allow assessing the student's ability to communicate clearly the information gained during the course.


Criteri di misurazione dell'apprendimento.

The final vote is awarded out of thirty. The exam is passed when the vote is greater than or equal to 18. It is expected to attribute the highest score with honors (30 cum laude).


Criteri di attribuzione del voto finale.

The final vote is attributed following the oral test. Praise is given if the student demonstrates full mastery of the subject.


Learning Evaluation Methods.

The student will demonstrate his/her expertise by an oral examination on at least three questions.
