ESC 4512 - Amphibian Ecology and Conservation


(3) Credit Hours

To understand the biological diversity, ecology, evolution, and cultural and environmental value of amphibians and to introduce the types and sources of information that must be known should one include amphibian conservation as professional career. Students who take this course should become more informed biologically and culturally about amphibians than someone (fellow students, family, friends, politicians) who has not taken the course, and be prepared to explain the global and regional value and importance of amphibians. In this course we will examine the conservation related aspects of amphibians and their habitats.  These aspects include the patterns of biological diversity, ecology, life history, law, policy, trade, and the over-arching methods used to measure, and monitor amphibian biodiversity will be reoccurring themes.  Spring semester odd years. Lecture 3 hours. Prerequisites: BIOL 3060 and 3070 or department head approval. May be registered as BIOL 4512. Credit not allowed in both BIOL 4512 and ESC 4512.
