New Course Supplement 2016


ENVS 80.09 Spatial Thinking in Ecology and Conservation

This course will examine the origins and recent developments of spatial thinking in ecology and conservation.  The spatial arrangement of individuals, populations and landscapes influences ecological dynamics, yet in many ways theory has not kept up with the development of new data collection tools - like drone/satellite-based sensors and GPS collars.  This course will introduce concepts and methods from landscape, movement, and population/community ecology to explore the general themes of scale and patterning and how they apply to emerging research and applied conservation questions.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
