Sustaining River Hydroecosystems: the interface of physical, biological, and social sciences

Kurt Fausch, Mike Gooseff

Description:In this 2-cr seminar, students will select, summarize, and discuss readings aimed at developing a multidisciplinary understanding of river hydroecosystem structure and function as it applies to managing rivers to sustain freshwater and riparian habitat and biota in the face of human demands and climate change. Students will be evaluated on 1) selecting papers and facilitating one or more discussions of them, 2) active participation in discussions led by others, and 3) an annotated bibliography of literature on sustaining river hydroecosystems at the interface of several relevant disciplines. Instructors will evaluate students in discussions and the bibliography
