Description

The study of the factors influencing the distribution and abundance of organisms in nature. Course topics will focus on individual ecology (physiological ecology, foraging strategies), and population ecology (population dynamics, life history strategies, evolution, competition, herbivory, predation, and mutualism), and will also address community ecology and ecosystem ecology. Lecture and discussion will be supplemented by field laboratory exercises designed to test ecological questions in a variety of terrestrial and aquatic habitats. Students will conduct group research projects and present their results in a symposium at the end of the term.
