People and Protected Areas (3) LARCH 499E is a three-credit seminar that aims to introduce students to key issues associated with communities, community design, biodiversity conservation, and the interface of people and conservation in the vicinity of Udzungwa Mountains National Park in south-central Tanzania. The format of the course is reading and discussion, where students read assigned literature and then contribute to discussions led by faculty, both to demonstrate their understanding of the reading assignments and to begin to explore key issues introduced by those readings. Students also write two papers, the first examining the interface of rural land use planning, community design, and biodiversity conservation; and the second focusing on biodiversity conservation in the context of human settlement near Udzungwa Mountains National park. Student evaluation is based on seminar participation and the two papers.
