This course explores principles and concepts underlying issues of use and management of natural resources in lectures and discussions. Ecological principles are explored in the context of human behavioral, ethical, socio-economic and institutional factors, emphasizing the necessity of interdisciplinary approaches. Topics include biodiversity, endangered species, population, exploitation practices, tropical deforestation, agriculture, air and water pollution, energy production and use, and waste disposal, at local to global scales. The Great Lakes Basin is used as a local laboratory source of examples, successes and failures in addressing ecological issues. An important part of the course is a project in which students can explore their own particular interests within this subject area. Evaluation is based on a mid-term and a final exam, performance on several small projects and one larger final project, and a participation in the class. Exams will include short-essay answers. The final project will include a public display. Books and materials are estimated to cost approximately $150.
