Text is Killing the Natives: Has the American Dream Become a Nightmare? It is available from the university bookstore, Antigone Books, and directly from the publisher. You have a chance to save money and a few trees by downloading the book from the latter source. Chapters in the schedule of classes refer to this book (e.g., "KtN chapter 1").

Most articles, chapters, and symposium proceedings are available as PDF files directly linked to the schedule of classes or via the library's online reserve system. An exception is the habitat-type manual by Muldavin et al. (1996), copies of which are available for short-term inspection in Biosciences East 226D and will be made available for relevant field trips and exams.
