BIO 235 - Introduction to Fisheries & Wildlife Management


Fisheries and Wildlife Management is a many-faceted field.  There is no single class that will provide students with all they need to become a professional.  This course is a combination of lectures, discussions, literature review and external activities that represent different aspects of the field.  Topics include defining Fish & Wildlife Management, a historical perspective, demographics and population growth, “decimating/welfare factors” and specific case studies.  Students will appreciate the breadth of the field, the coursework necessary to become a fisheries or wildlife biologist and acquire a basic conceptual fluency.  While the course includes foundation-building content, the need for professional training will be emphasized. 

Prerequisites: BIO 117, BIO 118, BIO 114 and MAT 102, or permission of instructor.
