This course is designed as an introduction to the ecology of Spanish Florida. Spanish Florida was a colony of Spain and Great Britain that occupied all of the modern state of Florida, as well as parts of Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, and
Louisiana. While the course will emphasize identification and natural history of birds, mammals, and reptiles, we will also explore the varied natural communities, as well as anthropogenic impacts on these communities over history. Understanding the history of the place will allow us to know how and why the current environment successes and challenges exist as they do. Permission of Instructor.
