Sobre o curso

The course presents an overview of the theory behind biological diversity evolution and dynamics and of methods for diversity calculation and estimation. We will become familiar with the major alpha, beta, and gamma diversity estimation techniques. Understanding how biodiversity evolved and is evolving on Earth and how to correctly use and interpret biodiversity data is important for all students interested in conservation biology and ecology, whether they pursue careers in academia or as policy makers and other professionals (students graduating from our programs do both). Academics need to be able to use the theories and indices correctly, whereas policy makers must be able to understand and interpret the conclusions offered by the academics. The course has the following expectations and results: - covering the theoretical and practical issues involved in biodiversity theory, - conducting surveys and inventories of biodiversity, - analyzing the information gathered, - and applying their analysis to ecological and conservation problems. Needed Learner Background: - basics of Ecology and Calculus - good understanding of English...

I really love this course because the theories and calculations are described well and after assignments are completed I get real understanding of the theories.

This course was well organised and very informative course. Some parts of this program may very helpful for my future works. Thanks, you all for the great job!

In a global matter, I found the course very complete. But, in my opinion, too much information was clustered into each video making it difficult to understand. I suggest a video, or a sheet, as an additional resource, summarizing all the information and the statistical analysis approached in each module . Also, the transcript was very bad.

Very nice, quick overview. Formulation of equations in Biology leaves a bit to interpretation but this is a systemic issue. The guy is obviously highly proficient and comfortable with the subject matter never falters in his delivery. Assignments are all quizzes and the whole thing can be completed without undue pain.

At this point of time, when the climate change has gained pace and we are in a different world with erratic and unpredictable climate, it has become essential for us to set right the ecological balance, which is possible only by better understanding of biological diversity.

Very technical especially in Week 4-6! However, provides a comprehensive foundation for anything "biological diversity" from the standpoint of a scientist. Great coverage of statistical theory and methods used in ecological studies in the final week!

Great course, but may be challenging for students with no prior background in ecology or biodiversity science. Suggestions on lecture transcripts and more concrete examples of real world applications of concepts are also possible.

Was great to work on this course, covered new data sampling methods I had not used before and great as an introduction for those interested in field study or a good revision for those who already work in the field.

A very interesting and clearly presented course. I would recommend this course anyone who is interested in the study of biodiversity.

Even though my first language is English, I sometimes find it difficult to understand what Roberto is saying. You can see the difficulty in the transcript, which incorrect in many place. Especially difficult was the lecture in the museum. It was a critical mistake to record it there, because the acoustics was terrible.

t​he scope of the material seems extensive, but it's presented in a shallow way, like ticking boxes for each topic.

I​n short, disappointing.

The instructor Italian accent is difficult to comprehend.

I was really disappointed in this course.

The first point being that the lecturer was very difficult to understand. He sounds like he's rushing through each lecture. Some words are mispronounced and this combined with the speed at which he speaks makes if difficult to understand the words, let alone the concepts. The transcripts are a little help but they also frequently are unable to understand and have missing and misunderstood words. At one point invertebrate is in the transcript as vertebrate.

There is also very little explaining of any of the formulas that are presented. No examples are given, just a formula on the screen frequenty usng variables that aren't defined. Whilst he is talking about the formula, the image returns to him talking so you can't actually see what he is talking about at the same time.
