ECOL 1111 - Terrestrial Ecology

(formerly ECOL 2211)
Credit(s): 3
Lecture Hour(s): 3
Lecture Hours Schedule Type: Blended, Lecture, Online
Lab Hour(s): 3

The study of the interactions and the interdependencies of organisms in terrestrial ecosystems will be the focus of this course. Ecological processes and interactions at the individual, population and community levels within terrestrial ecosystems will be examined. Spatial and temporal patterns of variability within terrestrial ecosystem components and the resulting effects on ecosystem function will be investigated. Natural variability as well as human-induced changes will be profiled. This course will also examine how managed and unmanaged natural terrestrial ecosystems interact with industrial systems. The resulting effects of these interactions on biodiversity and ecosystem function will be critically examined.
