Non-native, invasive species are second only to habitat destruction in their effects on biodiversity and ecosystems. This course examines the causes, impacts, biology, and management of the human-mediated redistribution of the earth's biota, including invasive bacteria, fungi, plants, and animals in terrestrial, aquatic, and marine environments. Class time will consist of lectures, discussion of peer-reviewed scientific literature, and student-led presentations and discussions. In laboratory, invasive species research and management techniques are examined including GIS mapping of species distributions, field sampling techniques, analysis of trophic interactions, and biological control studies.
