Primary Instructor:


Predation is a integral process in nature that culminates in death. Despite its prevalence across many taxa from plants to insects to mammals, little effort has aimed at understanding the biotic and abiotic factors that influence this type of species interaction. In this course, we will discuss biogeographic patterns and theoretical frameworks as well as conservation implications of predation. We will focus heavily on building professional skills grounded with a collaborative review paper on the course subject.

Course Requirements:

Assignments will include contacting journal editors, participating in the peer review process, writing components of paper, conducting literature searches, and synthesizing relevant information orally and visually.
