This course introduces the scientific and cultural significance of biological diversity through a survey of the diversity of species and ecosystems in the United States. The U.S. harbors an impressive array of the world's species and ecosystems inhabiting environments ranging from frozen tundra to Death Valley to coral reefs. A high proportion of U.S. biodiversity is at risk of extinction; the reasons behind this assessment are reviewed. Principles of ecology, evolution, and conservation biology are introduced, and individual and political approaches to conserving biodiversity are presented and discussed. Students write short essays and a short paper.
