NRES 598 XM - Experimental Graduate Courses - Wildlife Ecology and Ag Policy
Experimental course on a special topic in natural resources and environmental sciences. Course Information: May be repeated to a maximum of 12 hours.
In this course we will investigate the interaction between agricultural practices and wildlife (mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians), with emphasis on how changes in Midwestern agricultural practices have affected wildlife and what the future might hold. We will also discuss sustainable management in these environments and the current trends in this field. With the advent of biofuels and new and revised USDA programs geared toward creating wildlife habitat on former agricultural fields, the overall effect of agriculture on wildlife populations may rapidly change over the next decade. These changes may be beneficial for some species, while detrimental to others. Online scheduled class sessions require each student to have high speed internet access and either a headset with microphone or an external microphone and speakers so they may participate in the class discussions. Wireless internet is not recommended.
