ENVS 316 - Ecosystem Ecology

FC NSMA QFR
4 credits
The ecosystem concept provides a framework for understanding complex interactions between life and the physical environment and the role of humans as dominant agents of biogeochemical change. We will apply systems concepts to understand the flows of energy, cycles of matter and control mechanisms that operate in ecosystems and will compare the structure and function of a variety of natural and human dominated ecosystems. Students will explore primary literature, will learn field and laboratory methods for analyzing local ecosystems, and will propose, execute and analyze group research projects. Field trips required.
Prerequisites & Notes: BIOL 103 or BIOL 200 and either CHEM 101, 103 or 051.Ecosystem Ecology counts toward Biology and Environmental Studies major requirements.
