ENVSCI 685 - Ecosystem Management Law and Policy

3 Credit(s)

This course examines environmental and natural resource management laws through and ecosystem law and policy lens. Ecological concepts are considered and assessed in light of the myriad challenges related to complex systems management. In light of the fact that most public policy, regulatory and market approaches to resource use and ecosystem stewardship focus on human behavior, socio-economic concepts are examined as well. Students participate in discussions of readings in the ecosystem management, law and policy literature; select and critically review an environmental or natural management program from an ecosystem management perspective, and present their findings to the class.
