This course introduces you to a wide range of issues that our forests face in a changing climate and growing human population. The interaction between humans and forests are extensive; the pressures we place on our forest resources are significant; and we expect our forests to provide many services. This course will explore these interactions and other forestry related topics including distribution and forest ecology, silvics and forest management, and ecosystem services. Alternative uses for forests and solutions to forestry-related issues will also be covered.  (Prerequisite:  FRST101W Recommended)
