BIOL 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 abundance of organisms, the effects that organisms have on ecosystems, the integration of ecosystems around the globe, and the conservation of species diversity. The class will also explore how the behavior and physiology of individual organisms shape both local and global patterns of distribution and abundance. Laboratories focus on experimental and quantitative analyses of local ecosystems, with an emphasis on field studies.
