We meet Wednesday at 9 AM in the north side of Memorial Union near Starbucks. This semester we are discussing important people and foundational papers in conservation historically, and their relevance to the future of the conservation movement.
Questions or to receive reading materials: Email Katie O'Donnell
Reading group is a place where students, faculty, and conservation professionals discuss readings relating to all aspects of conservation biology. We aim to keep topics interdisciplinary to broaden everyone’s perspectives and knowledge. Feel free to come to one or many!
Note: Reading group/seminars can be taken for 1 hour of graduate credit. Register for BIO_SCI 8187, section 07. You can take it for credit as many times as you like.
