The course examines the conservation of natural resources. First we discuss the basic principles of resource management including its philosophy, history and ecological foundations. Next, we take a close look at some of its impacts, such as extinctions and the effects of world population growth. With this foundation, we take a more detailed look at the management of specific resources, including agriculture, forestry, wildlife, fisheries, and range management, then renewable energy. We complete the course with a look at nonrenewable energy and the impact that has had on global warming.
