This course examines human environment interactions in time and space from an anthropological perspective, and reviews the advantages and limitations of the ecosystem approach as previously and presently applied to human studies. Human behaviour and how it has evolved are studied using models such as optimal foraging strategy, population regulation, carrying capacity and bioenergetics. Contemporary approaches in environmental anthropology are discussed within the context of past human ecological studies. PREREQ: 9 ANTR credits or permission of the instructor. (lec 3) cr 3.
