FIG Description:

From microbes and genes to ecosystems and biomes, biodiversity is essential to sustaining life on earth.  Maintaining this diversity requires novel thinking and innovative solutions drawn from a wide variety of fields, from art to engineering to science. In this FIG, you will learn about current topics in biodiversity and sustainability, and have the opportunity to explore beyond the classroom with a weekend expedition to Wyoming's Red Desert and shorter field trips around the Laramie community. You will spend the semester exploring how to best maintain the health of both ecological communities and the built environments in which we work, study, and play.
