NCKU Curriculum Map
1. 2.

Wetlands support life, both terrestrial and aquatic, along all parts of the food chain. The ecosystem services provided by wetlands are not just the backbone of the water and food systems we depend on, but provide climate regulation, flood mitigation, cultural richness, and economic opportunities. The creation of wise-use management plans for wetlands requires both interdisciplinary and stakeholder collaboration. This course will incorporate interdisciplinary thinking, with professors from Taiwan and the United States, to explore options for better management of coastal wetlands. Through fieldwork, students in this course will implement the theories discussed and help conduct participatory research to better understand the ecosystem services provided by coastal wetlands in Southwestern Taiwan.
