About the course

Ecosys­tems pro­vide resources and ser­vices essen­tial to our sur­vival, and our actions have var­ied and sig­nif­i­cant impact on them. This course will include the study of ecol­o­gy and envi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment, incor­po­rat­ing the fun­da­men­tal com­po­nents of ecosys­tems and how they inter­act. Stu­dents will learn about the com­po­nents of ecosys­tems: biot­ic and abi­ot­ic, ecosys­tem devel­op­ment and func­tions, ecosys­tem cycles, and the foun­da­tions of pop­u­la­tion, com­mu­ni­ty, and dis­tur­bance ecol­o­gy. This infor­ma­tion will be uti­lized to exam­ine ques­tions around land use, envi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment, eco­nom­ic impact, and the roles envi­ron­men­tal ethics play in answer­ing them.
