About This Class

Ecology is an integrative science that can provide insight into many contemporary environmental problems.  This course will explore the principles of ecology using a hands-on, interdisciplinary approach.  Course work stresses the inventorying of biotic and physical components of a landscape (pieces), examining how these pieces are distributed (patterns), and determining what forces drive these patterns (processes).  Topics will include interpreting the natural and cultural histories of a landscape, biodiversity conservation, and the scientific method, among others.

Approved for JD credit.
