Proposal

Proposal ID: 102181
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Submission Date: January 24, 2018 10:41am
Approval Date: January 25, 2018 10:22am
Effective Term: Summer 2018
Justification:
We are removing the restriction of only 24 credits from one department. This restriction is no longer needed.

We moved the Measurements requirement from the Natural Resources Core into each specialty option in order to insure that students take the most applicable courses for their chosen specialty.

Courses were removed, added or reorganized as needed to update the option.
Comments:
Response to Brock Mc Leod's liaison comments (not showing in proposal): Thanks so much for all your suggestions! We will add Z 349 Biodiversity: Causes, Consequences and Conservation to the Ecology Breadth Block. We decline to add BI 348 Human Ecology as its focus is too much on human impacts rather than forest ecosystems. We decline to add Z 350 Animal Behavior as students in this option should be focusing on forest and grassland systems. We decline to add Z 365 Biology of Insects and Z 477 Aquatic Entomology because it would be better for students in this option to be taking FES 412 Forest Entomology.
