Unit Scientists teach courses at the graduate level that are responsive to the needs of graduate students. SC Unit scientists founded a weekly seminar series that focuses on management and conservation of natural resources which is know organized by a School Committee. We also support Clemson's Ecology Program through teaching, research, and mentoring.
Recent courses taught include Foundations of Ecology, Advanced Conservation Biology, Ecological Energetics, Wildlife Habitat Associations, and Wildlife Disease and Health.
