ENV 430 - Wildlife Ecology and Management (4 cr.)


Wildlife Ecology seeks to explore the natural history, biodiversity, diel cycles, behavior and movement patterns, food preference, and community and habitat interactions among wildlife species. Exploration of methods for surveying and identifying wildlife, specifically vertebrates, will offer opportunities for discussion of primary literature. Independent and group field research will stem from careful primary literature searches and class discussion. Through trapping, surveys, animal tracking using GPS and radio-telemetry, strict adherence to the scientific method, and GIS analysis, students will gain first-hand knowledge of tools for the wildlife professional. The course will combine morning lecture with afternoon data collection, and evening analysis and presentation.
