Practical Case Studies in Rangeland Management and Conservation
Lectures and labs are the same as for ENCS 471, but with additional assignments and evaluation appropriate to graduate studies.
Offered alternate years commencing 2009/10.
This course is intended to be a capstone for students in the range & pasture major (B.Sc. Ag.) and the wildlife and rangeland management major (B.Sc ENCS). Its content will involve first hand experience looking at the detailed effects of grazing & browsing, fire, and various other disturbances and/or improvement practices on the composition, structure, productivity, and species diversity of native rangeland ecosystems and introduced pastures. Range and pasture conservation efforts, management, and monitoring, as well as habitat improvement will be discussed on fieldtrips and within the weekly seminars that follow.
Prerequisite: ENCS 356. ENCS 406 strongly recommended.
