Krausman, Paul

Boone and Crockett Professor of Wildlife Conservation
Wildlife Biology
Boone and Crockett Club

Over my career I taught a variety of courses from anatomy and physiology to advanced wildlife courses. Those I enjoy most are the classes that help students think and develop professionally. I am using my editorial experience with numerous regional, national, and international journals to teach a graduate class in scientific writing for publication (in even years). In odd years I teach a graduate colloquium related to big game ecology.
