This Week's Focus: Biomes

We will begin (and finish) our study of Terrestrial Biomes and Land Use and begin our study of Aquatic Biomes and Ecology this week. Specifically, we will be focusing on conservation biology, forests and deforestation, irrigation, national forests, rangelands, water, and marine and freshwater biomes. More information about the content, the location of each handout, and helpful hints for each assignment can be found in Module 5: Terrestrial Biomes and Land Use Course Resources and Module 6: Aquatic Biomes and Ecology Course Resources.


Are you taking advantage of the information in the Course Resources Newsletter?

I've created these to help YOU earn the best grade possible in the course. These newsletters have helpful tips for each assignment, including FAQ and trouble spots for the assignment. I have also included a list of helpful videos IN ADDITION to the videos located within your course. If you are struggling to understand a concept, these extra instructional videos could be helpful to you.
