290s will be listed here as they are announced.

Ecological Networks. Instructors: Fernanda Valdovinos and Becca Nelson. Click here for more information.

Description: This is a graduate-level seminar (1-unit) focused on discussion of topics related to structure and dynamics of species interaction networks. We will meet weekly to discuss two journal articles. Some topics will include: How do we analyze mutualistic networks? How do hybrid mutualist-antagonist networks contribute to our understanding of ecological communities? In what ways can trait and behavioral information be integrated into ecological networks? How can networks inform conservation efforts? How does anthropogenic global change affect the structure and dynamics of species interaction networks?

CRN: 29847

Time: Mondays, 2:10-3:00pm

Location: Wickson 2120B

Wild Energy Seminar - Energy and the Environment in Transition. 1 unit. Instructor: Rebecca Hernandez. Click here for more information.

Description: For both ecologists and energy scientists framed around pressing topics at the interface between energy and the environment. Engage with impactful research activities on energy and its interaction with Earth’s resources and species and how these interactions may link to climate change mitigation, protection of biodiversity, and other socio-ecological goals. Weekly speakers.

CRN: 29848

Time: Wednesdays, 12-1:00pm

Location: Zoom

Best Practices for Project Management in Ecology. 1 unit. Instructor: Steven Sadro, MJ Farruggia and Dave Ayers. Click here for more information.

Description: Are you feeling overwhelmed managing one or more research projects? Do you wonder how some people do this with astounding efficiency? Chances are they rely on a series of good practices, organizational structures, and software tools. It’s likely that you incorporate some, but perhaps not all, of these tricks-of-the-trade. This 290 is designed to facilitate a series of weekly student discussions where we can all learn from each other and ultimately achieve effective and efficient project management. Potential topics include database design and management, reference management, file path design, version control, and code organization.
