General Ecology (Bio 160)


Course description
General Ecology is an upper division core course that provides students with an understanding of the fundamental processes that influence the distribution and abundance of organisms, the interactions among organisms, and the role of organisms in the flux of energy and cycling of matter.  Because humans affect virtually all ecological systems, the course highlights human interactions with the environment as a context for understanding larger ecological principles.  In addition to focusing on the subject of ecology, the course emphasizes scientific thinking and problem solving.

BIO 1 and BIO 2 or BIO 1 and BIO 10; BIO 100 or ENVS 120.  BIO 100 or ENVS 120 may be taken concurrently.
