Landscape Ecology and Biogeography Using GIS

Why do plants and animals live where they do and how will they respond to increasing anthropogenic pressures? This course will explore scientific approaches to untangle the dynamic interactions between geologic features, human impacts, climate, and biodiversity. In it, we will use real data to examine the fundamental principles of landscape ecology and biogeography and their applications to conservation practices. The course will consist of 2 hours of lectures and 3 hours of lab per week.
