Type LECTURE
Course Description Prerequisites: Enrollment limited to 12 students. Permission of the instructor required. This class looks at the response of wildlife (birds and plants) to climate change and land-use issues from the end of the last glaciation to the present. We visit wildlife refuges along a rural-suburban-urban gradient in order to observe and measure the role refuges play in conservation. Case study topics are: (1) land-use change over time: a paleoenvironmental perspective, (2) environmental transformations: impact of exotic and invasive plants and birds on local environments and (3) migration of Neotropical songbirds between their wintering and breeding grounds: land-use, crisis and conservation. Format: lecture, student presentations, field trips and data collection/analysis
