This seminar course will focus on the alpine and subalpine environments of New Hampshire including the region's flora and fauna, geology, climate, as well as human influences including recreational uses. The course includes a field portion that is integral to the course content and involves fairly strenuous hiking, since alpine areas lie at high elevations. Students should be prepared to hike 7-10 miles per fieldtrip with elevation changes ranging from 2,000 to 4,000 feet.
