Subject: Landscape Genetics Course -Spring 2018

Landscape genetics course offered this spring 2018.

Joe Johnson is the instructor of record for a 6900 course. This is not officially set up yet, however, we need to know how many people are interested in taking the course before we can reserve a room.

The class will be every Wednesday from 11:30-1:30 starting January 17th and going through May 9th

The majority of this class will be web-based, with various prominent landscape ecology instructors. Once a month, Steve Spear will personally give a lecture.

Please contact Joe Johnson (jjohnson at ohio.edu<mailto:jjohnson at ohio.edu>) ASAP if you are interested in taking this course.

Below is the tentative course schedule.
