Ecology is the study of the distribution and abundance of organisms, the interactions among organisms, and the interactions between organisms and the physical environment. Conservation biology is an applied science based on ecological principles that focuses on conserving biological diversity and on restoring degraded ecosystems. Arizona State University has made a commitment toward a more sustainable world, and knowledge of conservation biology and ecology is one critical component to help us meet this global challenge.
Conservation biologists at ASU investigate the impact of humans on Earth's biodiversity and develop practical approaches to prevent the extinction of species and promote the sustainable use of biological resources. Some investigate the causes of ecosystem degradation and use ecological principles to reestablish desired conditions within a range of ecosystems, including rivers, wetlands, grasslands, urban landscapes and forests.
