Proposal ID: 106815
Type: New Course
Submission Date: May 29, 2019 11:06am
Effective Term: Summer 2019
Currently there are no courses offered through Oregon State University that would provide students with a background in the ecology of fish and wildlife in urban areas. With the world's population doubling over the last 50 years to more than 7.6 billion people globally and the subsequent expansion of urban environments, there is a need for future biologists to understand the complexities between human societies and ecosystems. In addition, urban expansion and subsequent habitat loss will continue to challenge conservation efforts. This course will provide students with the necessary background to meet the conservation and management challenges of the 21st century. In addition, this course will provide an experiential learning opportunity as students conduct field observations in and around an urban setting.

this Course:

The human population has more than doubled over the last 50 years to now more than 7.6 billion people, with the majority living in towns or cities. Within and around these urban areas there is an increasing pressure on fish and wildlife communities and greater demand on resources within the ecosystems. Consequently, there is an increasing need to understand the interactions between humans and the animal species within these urban areas. The effects of urbanization on species, communities, and ecosystems will be examined as well as the topics of invasive species, conserving biodiversity, human health and well-being, and urban planning.
