ENV 316 - Case Studies in Environmental Management

Three Credits
Every Other Spring

Several federal agencies are charged with management of vital ecological resources such as forests, fisheries, rangeland, and waterways. In this course, students study how such agencies make critical resource management decisions, often by needing to reconcile conflicting goals. The course is organized around case studies that illustrate the scientific, legal, economic, and social dimensions of such decision making, which is often based on incomplete information, and done within the context of stakeholder conflict.
