Individual tutorial study of topics or courses under development to address the latest scientific developments in forest resources. Offered: AWSpS.
This course will be taught primarily by field trips to restoration sites. We will learn how to analyze success or failure in restoration by looking at young and old restoration projects in a variety of settings, including wetlands, prairies, forest settings, oak woodlands, highly urbanized areas, etc.
