This course will cover areas related to ecology- specifically in the areas of wildlife biology, wildlife management, and conservation biology. There will be some bias towards vertebrate and behavioral ecology since my research is centered in these areas. The topics we will be discussing overlap many areas of biology and incorporate some chemistry and physics as well. In addition, you will develop skills that will permit you to analyze and interpret data and, most importantly, formulate your own ideas.
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
Problem-solving in Conservation Biology and Wildlife Management (2nd edition), Gibbs et al.
