Required texts for USU Course
We will rely primarily on Ben Goldfarb's new Eager: The surprising secret life of beaver and why they mater and augment that with primary literature for course readings. Our syllabus tracks the narrative of Ben's book well and he does an excellent job of bringing in references to the scientific literature where appropriate. However, there are also three highly recommended texts for this course. See here for required course on the USU Campus Store site.
