A management overview of the study of the evolutionary mechanisms, species concepts, and taxonomic and systematic principles as applied to species-level taxon. Includes examination of how federal, state, and international laws relating to rare, threatened and endangered species affect the decision-making of environmental managers. Field projects will build skills to identify methods of species endangerment and the protocol for conducting threatened and endangered species field surveys. Regulations that impact business and development are presented through a series of case studies that provide managers with decision-making tools for compliance. The conservation methods and challenges of managing populations of rare and endangered species are also emphasized. Prereq: None.
