GRG 367D GRG 367D. Climate Change and Vegetation Response in the Kalahari. 3 Hours.
Using the Kalahari as a basis for understanding, explore the ecological dynamics of savanna systems and their interactions with climatic variability over time and space. The focus on monitoring and assessment to inform rangeland management includes vegetation sampling and calculations of carrying capacity. Examine how savanna systems dynamics are comparable across regions, and thus are both globally and UT-locally relevant. The equivalent of three lecture hours a week for one semester. Geography 356T (Topic: Climate Change and Vegetation Response in the Kalahari) and 367D may not both be counted. Offered on the letter-grade basis only. Prerequisite: GPA of at least 2.0.
