Courses Taught

  • Conservation Biology and Modeling This course covers basic principles of conservation biology; students build models to solidify their understanding. (Terri Donovan 2017)
  • Principles of Modeling with Spreadsheets / Population Dynamics (Terri Donovan 2016)
  • Applied Ecology, Environment, and Society (Terri Donovan, 2015)
  • Principles of Modeling with Spreadsheets / Population Dynamics (Terri Donovan, Michelle Brown 2014)
  • Aquatic Ecology and Watershed Sciences Seminar Organized the discussion topic and ran the discussion meetings. The topic was on reviewing papers for journals and how to prepare manuscripts for publication (Donna Parrish 2014)
  • Principles of Modeling with Spreadsheets / Population Dynamics Students will be introduced to a variety of modeling techniques applicable to resouce management and conservation issues. Modeling topics include population models, decision analysis, and ecosystem models. This course was developed in collaboration between the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, National Training Center, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Conservation Training Center, and the Vermont Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit. Students include graduate students plus professional scientists from both federal and state agencies. (Terri Donovan 2012)
  • Ecology of Fishes (Donna Parrish 2012)
  • Graduate Student Seminar-On Becoming a Successful Scientist (Donna Parrish 2012)
  • Aquatic Ecology and Watershed Science Seminar The purpose of the AEWS seminar is to provide an opportunity for the AEWS community to interact, share emerging research results, get feedback on proposed experimental plans, discuss recent papers of interest to the group, and learn about related research from outside speakers and collaborators. Graduate students in the AEWS concentration are required to take this seminar for credit (1 cr) once during their tenure in the graduate program, ideally in the semester in which they are planning their field research. However, the entire AEWS community and colleagues who are interested in AEWS research are strongly encouraged to join us each semester. (Donna Parrish 2011)
  • Introduction to Occupancy Modeling This course introduces students to modeling patterns of species distributions, especially when not all individuals can be detected by an observer. The course is an on-line course, co-instructed by Kurt Rinehart, Lew Coggins, and Terri Donovan. We'll be posting materials on a public website listed below as materials are finalized. (Terri Donovan 2010)
  • Principles of Modeling with Spreadsheets/Population Dynamics and Modeling This course introduces a variety of modeling techniques applicable to resouce management and conservation issues. Modeling topics include population models, decision analysis, spatial models, and ecosystem models. (Terri Donovan 2010)
  • Integrated Conservation Monitoring (Terri Donovan 2009)
  • Ecology of Fishes (Donna Parrish 2009)
