The advanced placement or AP Environmental Science program for public schools has a nationally established curriculum with rigorous, college-level standards. The curriculum is a broad one that encompasses not only ecological topics but also Earth science and conservation issues.

Each year, a comprehensive examination is given throughout the USA to evaluate the knowledge of students in the field of environmental science. However, at present few educational resources are freely available for AP educators to use in their classrooms.  To begin providing these resources, Bird Conservation Research, Inc. has produced a series of Powerpoint presentations that cover the national curriculum standards. In addition, they go beyond present standards to present timely topics that are at the forefront of ecological and conservation thinking. 

To date, we have produced four presentations: Earth Systems and Resources, The Living World, Population and Environmental Pollution. These are available for free download via the BCR web site.
