With an ever-growing concern about the conservation of biodiversity, there is increasing emphasis on developing skills and techniques to inventory species distributions and to monitor population dynamics. Field sampling techniques and skills in taxonomy are crucial to conservation surveillance. This course is an introduction to basic field and curator skills necessary to collect, manage and maintain specimen data for biological inventory and monitoring. The specific aims for this ten-week experience are: 1) to develop collection techniques in a field setting; 2) to practice processing and management of specimens and associated data; 3) to communicate findings to Montana stake holders.
