Rainforest Management Studies

4 credits

This course compares and contrasts the ecological, geographic, social, economic, and historical factors that have shaped natural resource management in Australia and New Zealand. Students gain an understanding of the drivers of species extinctions and current conservation problems including management of endangered species. In both countries, students examine the influence of fragmentation on abiotic and biotic attributes of forest communities during field exercises, and identify management techniques with regard to biological systems, national boundaries, and political structures.
