Faculty in Environmental Studies and EEMB Departments
- Ph.D., University of California, Santa Barbara
Dr. Carla D'Antonio's teaching is in the area of ecology and the application of ecological knowledge to environmental problem solving. She is particularly passionate about teaching courses that get students out into the field to evaluate real world ecosystem management problems and to apply knowledge used in the Bio
