ESM 216

Science and Management for Forest Sustainability

Joan Dudney

Units: 2


Graduate-level introduction to forest sustainability from an applied interdisciplinary research and environmental problem-solving perspective. The course meets weekly, with each week covering a different aspect of forest science (e.g., forest ecohydrology) or management (e.g., wildfire policy). The material will be covered through readings as well as lectures and discussions led by faculty experts from the Bren School and beyond. Students will also develop a research proposal or analysis (as relevant to their degree) that is related to forest sustainability. Students will present their proposals/projects in the final week of the course; proposals may form the basis of subsequent MESM Group Projects or PhD research.
