BIOL 448C Directed Studies in Biology - DIRECTED STUDIES
A course designed to allow students to undertake an investigation on a specific topic as agreed upon by the faculty member and the student. Permission of the supervisor required. No more than six credits of BIOL 448 may be taken with the same supervisor.
- Tropical Ecology & Conservation In this course we will explore fundamental ecological and evolutionary principles using tropical landscapes as our geographic template. We will assess the factors that make tropical systems both unique but also vulnerable to degradation, drawing from comparisons across geographic regions. While we learn about the structure, function and biological history of the tropics, we will address the myriad challenges these regions face in biodiversity loss and conservation practice. This course is best suited for 3rd or 4th year students with a basic background in ecology, evolution and geography. Each week, we will introduce a course theme with a lecture, to provide a sound conceptual foundation, followed by discussion based on studies in the primary literature. Students are expected to read, evaluate and discuss scientific literature relevant to these course topics. For more information please contact Jill Jankowski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
