The autumn quarter seminar will cover three current and important topics in quantitative ecology and resource management:

1) Climate change and water resources

2) Sustainable management of resources

3) Invasive species.

Introductory papers in each topic will be read and discussed in seminar meetings facilitated by small teams of QERM faculty. The goal is to explore the basic challenges and issues in each topic and demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of the issues from the perspective of the QERM program.
