GEOG 316 - Field Methods for Environmental Science

The collection and analysis of field data is central to research and other work in the environmental sciences. In this field-based course students learn key methods used in environmental science, especially forest ecology. Students also work with the scientific method and learn to formulate and test hypotheses. Most class meetings involve field trips to nearby forest ecosystems to collect field data.  Occasional class meetings are in the classroom to discuss methodological approaches.


The successful completion of or concurrent enrollment in GEOG 116  or consent of the instructor is a prerequisite for Geography 216.
