This course focuses on the nature and distribution of the world's plant and animal resources, with emphasis on the Pacific Islands. Particular attention will be paid to the importance of plants and animals within the context of their characteristic ecosystems or biomes and the importance of physical, biotic and human factors in shaping ecosystems. Emphasis will also be placed on the ecological and cultural importance of plants and animals to sustainable human habitation of the earth. In this context, the ethno-botanical, ethno-zoological and, in particular, the economic importance of plants and animals to Pacific peoples will be examined. Two field trips are part of this course.
