Broad patterns of biodiversity (biomes), from rainforests to deserts to tundra, are products of geography, climate, and evolutionary history.  These properties affect each biome’s history of human exploitation and their threats in the 21st century.  We will explore Earth’s biomes and their threats, focusing on North America and the New World tropics. Some recurring topics include habitat loss, climate change, wildfire, introduced species, extinctions, and disease.
