Discussion Section EEB 116 – Conservation Biology Winter 2008 Jolene Moroney : [email protected] Office Hours: TBA Sections: 1A (Wed: 9:00-10:50am), 1B (Wed: 11:00-12:50pm), 1C (Wed:  1:00-2:50pm) Sara Painter: [email protected] Office Hours: Tues: 3.30-4.30pm, Wed 11am-12pm, Botany 427 Sections: 1D (Wed: 3:00-4:50Pm), 1F (Fri: 8:00-9:50am), 1G (Fri: 10:00- 11:50am) Graham Slater: [email protected] Office Hours: Thurs: 11 am-12pm, Friday 10-11am, LS 5213 Sections: 1E (Thurs: 9.00-10:50am), 1H (Fri: 12:00-1:50pm), 1I (Fri: 2:00- 3:50pm) I.  PURPOSE The main goal of the lecture is to outline principles of biology that are relevant to  conservation issues.  The focus of discussion section, however, is on the  application of those principles to particular problems, questions, controversies,  and case studies.  While the discussions will center on issues covered in the  lecture, they will not always be synchronized with lecture material, nor are they  meant to be (though complicated material will always be presented first in  lecture).  And while the idea of lecture is to instill you with the facts and principles  with a view to testing you on your understanding, the discussion sections are  meant more as a forum for discussion and debate.  You know –  talking .  In other  words, we encourage differing viewpoints and we have selected papers that we  feel promote debate.  If you read the articles critically and carefully and come  with a few questions, you should do fine.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
