This course introduces the idea of ecological monitoring, a key aspect of protected area management. The different units set the foundation to understanding what ecological monitoring is and how it should be implemented. Ecological monitoring is a vital component of adaptive management within a protected area. It is based on the surveillance of the environment, and consists in systematically collecting information over time, to answer one or several specific questions.
This course is part of the BOOC series (Book ad Open Online Courses), a collection of reading material supporting the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) provided by the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. These documents ideally complement the course, as they help revising the MOOC and obtain the certificate.
