Landscape Ecology Shortcourses


Dr. McGarigal offers a landscape ecology shortcourse entitled "Landscape ecology in theory and practice: application to land management" privately through LandEco Consulting (Dr. McGarigal, sole propreitor).

Note, this is a non-UMass course offered privately by Dr. McGarigal; it provides an introduction to the field of landscape ecology that couples lectures on theory and applications with computer lab projects to provide hands-on practical experience using state-of-the-art landscape analysis tools. This course is designed specially for professional land managers (e.g., US Forest Service, US Bureau of Land Management, US Bureau of Indian Affairs and others) and is offered once or twice each year contingent upon enrollment; the first offering is limited to participants enrolled in the National Advanced Silvicultural Program (NASP), whereas the second offering is open to anyone.
