BIOL 4001K - Freshwater Ecology


This course covers chemical and physical processes, diversity and adaptations, and ecosystem dynamics in wetlands and streams. The interactions between aquatic systems and adjacent terrestrial ecosystems are emphasized, with a strong focus on watershed-scale analysis. Throughout the course, relatively pristine ecosystems are compared with those that have been heavily modified by human activities, in order to explore how human activities can influence the characteristics and biological integrity of wetlands and streams. With laboratory, which provides students with practical experience in watershed mapping, wetlands delineation and stream ecosystem management. Outside field studies will be required.
