Courses Taught

  • Aquatic Contaminants and Toxicology (Colleen Caldwell 2017)
  • Large Mammal Ecology, Management, and Conservation (James Cain 2016)
  • Environmental Biology of Fishes What makes a fish, a fish. Course covers physiological basis of fish biology. Students gave me 99% out of 100% approval rating. (Colleen Caldwell 2016)
  • Wildlife-habitat Relationships (James Cain 2015)
  • Aquatic Contaminants and Toxicology (Colleen Caldwell 2015)
  • Large Mammal Ecology, Management, and Conservation (James Cain 2014)
  • Environmental Biology of Fishes (Colleen Caldwell 2014)
  • Wildlife-habitat Relationships (James Cain 2013)
  • Large Mammal Ecology, Management, and Conservation This course will cover aspects large mammal ecology, management and conservation.
    The goal of the course is not to provide an in depth analysis or discussion of all lines of
    scientific inquiry into the ecology of large mammals, but rather to introduce students to
    some of the major topics of research in large mammal ecology, particularly those with
    relevance to management and conservation. During this course we will discuss aspects
    of foraging ecology, resource and habitat selection, competition and resource
    partitioning, predation and population dynamics.
