General Ecology

(majors; see Summer 2014 website)

Course Description:   Ecology is the scientific study of the relationships between
organisms and their environment, including interactions that determine the
distribution and abundance of organisms. This course provides an introduction to
the patterns and processes influencing variation across different biological levels,
from individuals to populations, communities, and ecosystems. Read more >
