This week, please seek out an article about a current event that has been publishing during the time of this course (so, no older than 2 months) related to environmental and ecosystem management. This could be something of local concern, national or international. The Environmental News Network (http://www.enn.com/) is a great place to look, but you may also search other sites, or do a Google search on “Environmental News.” Think broadly – there are lots of articles out there about fish and wildlife resources, not only environmental planning, but ecosystem-based as well! If you are unsure if an article is appropriate, or if you’d like to use one older than a year old, please get my permission first. (NOTE: DO NOT USE THE SAME ARTICLE AS ANOTHER STUDENT.) Title your post with the name of the article. Thoroughly summarize the article and then explain how the article illustrates a term(s) or concept(s) we have studied in this class. The goal here is to exchange ideas and apply theoretical coursework to real-world examples. Be sure to integrate course readings and course vocabulary with your explanation and do some additional research to flesh out the topic beyond your textbook and lecture notes. We have almost finished up this course, so show us what you know!
