Dr. Douglas studies the ecology of agricultural systems with an emphasis on the roles of insects and other invertebrates as friend and foe to food production. Her research employs eclectic methods ranging from field experiments to meta-analysis, and is oriented to practical application through dialogue with farmers, beekeepers, conservation organizations, and policy makers. Her interests include integrated pest management, biological control, soil conservation, ecotoxicology (esp. neonicotinoid insecticides), and socio-ecological dynamics of pesticide use.
ENST 305 Environmental Data Analysis
Realms of environmental study as different as climate change, natural resource management, environmental justice, and many others share something in common: they often depend on collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data. This course will introduce students to data analysis as it applies to environmental studies and science. Lecture will include activities to understand statistical concepts, as well as critique of environmental data as it is presented in scholarly sources and popular media. During lab, students will learn to write code in the R statistical language to import, wrangle, analyze, and visualize data. The course culminates in a project to use a particular dataset to answer an environmental question. No previous coding experience is expected or required. Pre-req: ENST 162
