GEOG 34 The Global Food and Energy Landscape

Humans are dynamically transforming landscapes on rapid time frames and enormous spatial scales. In this course, we will investigate how and why humans transform landscapes and trade-offs between food, energy, and the environment. We will examine the socioeconomic and environmental drivers and consequences of these land-use changes. We will discuss topics such as the forest transition, land sparing and land sharing, land scarcity, and indirect land-use change; and highlight how globalization affects these processes. We will enhance our readings by examining spatial data to demonstrate how these processes unfold across different landscapes.

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.
