Ecology class at South Dakota State University

Courses Taught

  • Structured Decision Making in Natural Resource Management Graduate seminar course that provides an introduction to the principles and practice of structured decision making and adaptive management and its application in natural resource management. Students become familiar with the application of quantitative decision modeling tools and apply these methods to natural resource problems. (Angela Fuller 2017)
  • Landscape Genetics (Angela Fuller 2016)
  • Controversial Conservation Topics In this literature seminar, we will discuss a suite of controversial conservation topics, exploring different sides of the scientific debate surrounding these issues and exploring feedbacks among science, policy, management, and public perceptions. The objective of the class is to encourage students to think critically about the science behind conservation issues and be aware of the complex manner in which conservation issues are communicated across scientists, decision makers, and the public. The class will be divided into four topic sessions:
    • Status of global fisheries
    • Ecosystem reference baselines
    • Monetization of nature
    • Conservation triage
