ENVS 351 - Principles of Ecology


This course examines the fundamental concepts in the rapidly developing areas of ecology. The topics covered include the factors that limit the distributions and abundances of organisms, the effects that organisms have on ecosystems, the integration of ecosystems around the globe, and the conservation of species diversity. The class also explores how the behavior and physiology of individual organisms shape both and the global patterns of distribution abundance. Laboratories emphasize collection, and quantitative analyses, of experimental and field data from local ecosystems. Lecture, Laboratory, and Field Trips.
