During the first half of course, I will lecture about the causes of the geographic distribution of North American drylands and their ecology. The second half of the course will consist of us reading and discussing scientific papers about past, present, and future land use. Students will lead the discussions. While we will cover the breadth of drylands, in the second half we will emphasize ecosystems in which big sagebrush is the dominant plant species
