Snakes in a container

I put up two extra slides at the end of today's lecture. These summarize most of the main concepts we have covered (although they don't include the first class on the history of conservation biology). These might be useful in reviewing the course so far. Can you explain each concept in your own words? Can you say why it is of concern for conservation? Can you give example(s) as appropriate?

Here's a snake sniffing dog in action. I hadn't realized the dogs were laid off in 2009 as a result of budget cuts. But, according to KITV Honolulu, it looks like the funding has been found to bring them back: State bringing back canine snake detectors
$162K set aside for hiring of inspector-trainer, 3 dog handlers.
