Course description from the course outline: Ecology is the study of the interactions between organisms and their environment. These include interactions at the individual, population, community, and ecosystem levels. Topics presented include: abiotic and biotic factors that form an organism’s environment, models of population growth and factors controlling growth, competition and predator-prey interactions in communities, energy flow and nutrient cycling in ecosystems. Laboratories emphasize collection, analysis, interpretation, and communication of ecological data.
