Course overview

A fundamental understanding of ecology and the physical and biological principles on which ecosystems depend is essential for any naturalist. Learn to interpret the patterns and processes of nature by studying energy flow, food webs, biogeochemical cycles, population dynamics, communities, behavioral and evolutionary ecology, biodiversity, biomes and plant/animal interactions. Modern ecological issues such as habitat loss, species extinctions, environmental chemicals and climate change will be considered. A previous course in biology is strongly recommended.
