Sustaining River Hydroecosystems for Aquatic and Riparian Biota

Kurt Fausch, Professor

Description:In this 2-cr seminar, students will select, summarize, and discuss readings aimed at developing an integrated understanding of the geomorphological, hydrological, and ecological principles that govern 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. Guest faculty and scientists will be invited to interact with the group in their areas of expertise. Students will be evaluated on a synopsis of literature on a key topic and presentation of it to the class on one week, and their participation in discussions each week.
