FWE/ZOO 660 Climate Change Ecology – The evidence that the Earth’s climate is changing at unprecedented rates is now overwhelming. Environmental tipping points are being crossed and many species are adapting or failing to adapt. Climate change poses a significant problem for conserving and managing wildlife and their habitats. In this class, students will be introduced to climate change and its ecological impacts through engaging class discussions, online climate exercises, and group projects aimed at developing climate change adaptation plans.
