Louisiana Education Activities

Field oriented courses are common and are often taught with other faculty from the School of Renewable Natural Resources

Unit scientists teach a number of graduate courses focused on wetlands, restoration ecology, policy, and behavioral ecology. In addition, Unit scientists provide guest lectures to a number of University classes.
