New summer field course concentrates on forests

A new field course emphasizing forest ecology will be offered May 11-20 in Juneau. Field Methods for Research Techniques in Southeast Alaska will cover forest age structure, spatial analyses, biomass estimation, soil classification, habitat structure and management-oriented treatments and experimental design.

Students will practice each technique in a hands-on fashion utilizing existing experiments and ongoing study locations.

The course can substitute for the NRM 290 field course Resources Management Issues at High Latitude.

Instructor Brian Buma is an assistant professor of forest ecosystem ecology at the University of Alaska Southeast.

The CRN is 52038, course number ENVS S293, section J01.
