This course will be offered in spring semesters of even years.
In Spring 2014, it is scheduled on M/W 11 am-12:15 pm.
We will develop a conceptual and practical understanding of habitat and wildlife-habitat relationships. The course will be comprised of two general sections:
- readings and discussion (oral and written) of relevant papers to build a conceptual understanding about habitat, habitat selection, and wildlife-habitat relationships and
- reading, lectures, and data-based assignments to understand the application and limitations of the diversity of analytical tools to quantify habitat characteristics, resource selection, and wildlife-habitat relationships.
All readings and assignments are posted on the course website on D2L (login at http://ecat.montana.edu).
