Über den Kurs

This course is an introduction to ecology and ecosystem dynamics using a systems thinking lens. Through a case study on Mozambique's Gorongosa National Park, learners will explore how scientists study ecosystems, and investigate the complex array of factors that inform management efforts. At the end of the course, learners will be able to grapple with real-world conservation questions, such as whether an ecosystem can recover from anthropogenic disruption and what role humans can, and should, play in that recovery....

This was particularly in-depth on the sciences of ecology, and having it based around a particular conservation project made it easier to follow each progressive lecture and concept that was explored.

I really enjoyed taking this course. It gave me good knowledge base in ecology and conservation. The course is very well structured and is suitable for people with no prior knowledge in the topic.

I came into this class with a BS in Ecology and was expecting something a bit more intensive for a class designated as intermediate. Many of the lessons taught basic ecology, but functioned as a great reminders. However, the integration of the Gorongosa Park and the studies from there were amazing. Anytime you can receive more examples of science in action the better. The included extra sources are helpful for one that is looking to expand their learning beyond the lessons given on the coursera course. I will continue to take the free courses to expand my learning during the stay at home orders. Thank you.

I really enjoyed this course, and thought the topics covered were diverse but cohesive. In hindsight, I would have taken some intro to biology or ecology courses, in order to better understand the terminology or mathematics, which could be overwhelming at times. I love the additional links to HHMI Interactive. What a great website and source for further knowledge and education. And some of the quizzes attached to the HHMI videos were helpful to dig deeper into what I should be understanding and learning from the information presented.

Very interesting course, if it was just for the content, I'd give it 5 stars, however the estimated time needed to complete reading the essays (and therefore the course) was in my opinion way too low. they estimated 10 minutes for each essays even though some were longer than others and it usally took me at least the double amount of time to complete the essays. However, I do not think that the essays were too long, just that they should adjust the estimated time so that users can prepare and organize themselves better :)

I found this course a little too easy (the quizzes were pretty simple, usually taken word-for-word from the videos or readings). But I think it was great anyways! I really enjoyed the real world examples used to demonstrate concepts. The materials (the videos and readings) were all put together really well, and this offered a pretty cohesive overview of the basic concepts of ecology and conservation. I really enjoyed the course overall.

it was amazing experience, to go through this course. I have learnt a lot. I am the student of Environmental Economics at Pakistan Institute of Development Economics. I want to explore the domains of Ecosystem and its influence fields, for that i got required ideas to pursue for better research in my field.

Thanks American Museum Of Natural History, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Thanks coursera for providing me this opportunity.

Hello, i think this course was in-depth enough to provide a good amount of details regarding the case study of Gorongosa national park while also providing the necessary background information needed to fully understand its ecological concepts. I think the course is well put together and alternates concise essays with relevant lectures which makes it more diverse. Thank you, greetings from the Netherlands

This is a well organized course that utilizes multiple instruction methods to give the learner a clear understanding of the nuances of ecology and conservation. Unfortunately this course didn't dive nearly in depth as a even a week in a high school AP Biology course. For this reason I recommend this course to people looking for only an intermediate exposure to ecological science.

A very well oriented course with its Lecture, Reading material, and Videos on various habitat. I felt like I am in a live session. course was designed in a simple way so that it can be easy for a beginner too. Ecological conservation concepts are very well mentioned. A must course anyone wants an add on in their knowledge of Ecology.

I absolutely loved the course. I wanted to learn more about ecology as I am very interested in this. It was nice that the taught knowledge was applied to a case study (Gorongosa National Park). The math parts (with the formulas) were a bit tricky to follow, but eventually it did become clear. Very educating and interesting course!

It was good overall but It kinda makes me think of how we are disturbing the nature in order to help it. From whatever I have seen during this pandemic, It is better that we let it be and curb our exploitation rather than trying to put in extra disturbance which only over complicates things. Cheers to a good course though !

Would have liked to have the opportunity to consolidate the concepts and skills mentioned in the course through an integrated assignment or capstone-like project. The content is very well organized and is a great vehicle to update one's ecosystem and conservation ecology thinking. Thank you to all the lecturers.

This course was so informative! I learnt more than I ever thought I could on this topic, but it didn't feel like that. It just felt like I was having fun. A few of the readings were a bit long, but that's not a problem if you like reading like me. Just remember to look away from the screen every so often :)

I think it was a good course. Not particularly a fan of Dr. Pringle's lectures as I can sense that hes not fully comfortable with presenting in front of a group of people but the guy is human. Would recommend for anyone who is considering a career in Ecology. You will see what this domain is all about.
