This set features the modules highlighted in the Systems Thinking Issue of our journal, Lessons in Conservation.
For this issue, we present a suite of materials designed to foster systems thinking in students. The materials provide a valuable introduction to systems thinking, both as a way of seeing the world, and a specific set of tools, with illustrative examples. Through exercises, the materials in this issue also promote engagement with the complexity of biodiversity conservation problems, as students are asked to apply different systems thinking tools, both qualitative and quantitative, to understand the connections between our food systems and biodiversity.
