Lectures from ERIC are made available here to the general public in order to foster a USF and community dialogue on environmental research and environment issues. The talks are posted one week after the live session.

Students - The timing of the lecture posting is done to encourage you to attend the lectures in person and to participate in the live discussion. This website is not intended as a method of "Distance Learning" or to replace class attendance. If you are absent or know you will be absent from class, contact your instructor. They can request special access to the videos, and you will be able to complete your assignments before the next class meeting.
