Introduction to Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology - Terrestrial Portion, (3 semester credits), with Keith Gido. An introduction to the ecological and management principles associated with the fields of fisheries, wildlife, and conservation biology. Topics include population ecology and assessment, resource management, and environmental legislation. Spring semester 2012-2016.
Habitat Ecology and Management (3 semester credits, graduate level course). Spring semester 2016.
Advanced Spatial Modeling, (3 semester credits, graduate level course), with Gene Albanese. This course is designed for graduate students in the biological, natural resource and environmental sciences. Proficiency with GIS software and familiarity with principles of landscape ecology are encouraged but not required. To accomplish the course objectives, we will use a project-based learning approach. Students will be required to work in interdisciplinary teams for class discussions, lab exercises and a final project. There will be a heavy emphasis on the use of computer software and models. Fall semester 2012, 2014.
Bayesian Methods in Ecology, (2 semester credits, graduate level course), with Beth Ross. The material in this course covers the application of Bayesian statistics (with comparisons to frequentist and traditional statistical approaches when appropriate) to ecological data, and is intended for graduate students in the biological and natural resource sciences. An understanding of linear regression and basic principles of biometry is required, and experience with R is encouraged. Fall semester 2014.
