BIOL 148 Science and Policy of Rapid Environmental Change (identical to ENVS 80.01)

Held concurrently with ENVS 80.01.  This course examines the connections between science and the human dimensions of rapid environmental change. First, ecosystem responses to emerging environmental issues (climate change, resource development) will be introduced from a scientific perspective. In the second part, we will explore how this science is framed in policy documents such as reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The course will emphasize the importance of science communication in the policy process and will culminate with a collaborative case study that integrates climate change, resource development, and social issues.
