|1.||Describe and elucidate the role and importance of genetics to the management of species and populations and its application to the field of natural resource management as a whole, including the limitations of genetic data;|
|2.||Formulate and argue a theoretical basis on which to base management decisions aimed at long-term conservation of genetic resources in a population;|
|3.||Construct and exhibit a practical understanding and application of the methods used in modern genetics and how these tools can be applied to the management of species and populations; and|
