An introduction to the relationship between the physical environment and the geographical distribution of biodiversity. Students will use hands-on field studies, computer-based mapping tools, and semi-independent research projects to explore relationships in local mountain-to-ocean ecosystems comprising the temperate rainforest of Southeast Alaska, as well as compare these patterns to analogous gradient ecosystems found in desert-like, semi-tropical, and tropical regions. Also covers the relevance of biological understanding to resource management, biological conservation, climate change, and environmental history.
