Prerequisite, BIOL 205 . Ecosystem ecology focuses on the flow of energy and materials through the living (e.g., plants, animals and microbes) and non-living (e.g., soils and the atmosphere) components of ecological systems. This course will explore cycles of water, energy, carbon, and nutrients in terrestrial ecosystems and how these cycles have been influenced by human activities. This course includes a lecture and required laboratory component held at different times. (Offered fall semester, alternate years.) 4 credits
