          Biology                                           

          Grade   Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  course
          focuses  on  the  biology  that  underlies
          conservation  problems and  the challenges
          we  face  as  a society.  This course will
          introduce    some    of   the   litrature,
          controversies, and promising methodologies
          used  in Conservation Biology. Objectivity
          and  sound  research design  are essential
          for   scientific   progress,   thus  major
          emphasis  will be  on carefully evaluating
          each   issue  in  a  rigorous,  scientific
          context. Specific goals of the course are:
          (1) To introduce the principal conncepts &
          methodologies of Conservation Biology, (2)
          To  enrich understanding of the scientific
          contributions    necessary   for   solving
          conservation   problems,   (3)  To  foster
          understanding of the process of science in
          general,and  as  applied  in  conservation
          contexts,    (4)    To   further   develop
          analystical   and   communication  skills,
          thereby    improving    the   ability   to
          contribute  to creating solutions. Classes
          will consist of lectures and discussion on
          particular     issues     and    readings.
          Prerequisite: GES 120 and BIOl 100, or for
          Biology Majors BIOL 100 only.

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD The course will
          focus on threatened and endangered species
          in  the United States and the evolution of
          natural resource policies and wildlife law
          to  protect  wildlife.  In  particular, we
          will   examine  why  the  1973  Endangered
          Species  Act  (ESA)  has  become  the most
          controversial  environmental  law  on  the
          books  through  an examination  of several
          ESA  case studies that will provide us the
          opportunity  to investigate  the conflicts
          that have arisen in response to efforts to
          protect  species.  We  will  also  discuss
          worldwide  efforts to protect biodiversity
          such   as   the  1975  Convention  on  the
          International  Trade of Endangered Species
          of  Wild  Fauna and Flora  (CITES) and the
          1992 Convention on Biological Diversity.

          Geography                                         

          Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD The  course is
          designed   to   provide  students  with  a
          comprehensive   understanding   of  Arctic
          geography,    including    the   physical,
          biological,  and  cultural characteristics
          of  the  region. With one  of the harshest
          climates  on Earth, the  Arctic region has
          many  unique features.  Climate change due
          to  human-enhanced emissions of greenhouse
          gases  has  already been  observed at high
          latitudes  and these  changes are altering
          the  entire  region. These  changes in the
          arctic  will  have  ripple effects  on the
          entire   globe.  The  importance  of  this
          region  is reflected  in the establishment
          of  2007-2008  as the  International Polar
          Year. We will examine the present state of
          the  Arctic  as  well as  possible futures
          related  to climate change.  Prerequisite:
          One  upper  division  course  in  physical
          geography  or  environmental  science,  or
          permission of the instructor.
