GEO 5305: Environmental Biogeography


Credits: 3                    Grading Scheme: Letter

Prerequisite: GEO 2200 or equivalent.      

Description and explanation of spatial patterns of biodiversity, and underlying biophysical factors of human-environment interactions. Past and present distributions of organisms and how patterns of environmental variation influence the organisms. Biogeography is useful for designing nature reserves, forecasting how climate change may affect organisms, and explaining human adaptations to environmental variability. This class takes a mostly ecological approach to understanding biogeography.
