Professional Interests

  • Role of shallow lakes in regional and global carbon cycling.
  • The biotic and abiotic controls on the metabolic balance of prairie pothole shallow lakes.
  • Decomposition of plants and algae in aquatic environments, and how this relates to carbon burial rate in lake sediments.
  • Physical and chemical characteristics of shallow lakes and how they differ spatially and temporally in macrophyte and algal-dominated wetlands.
  • The influence of fathead minnows and invertebrates on carbon cycling and burial in shallow lakes.

BIOL 209 - L02 Biology of Sustainability - T - R - - - 1330 - 1510 OWS 251
CRN: 41136 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Leah M. Domine Influences of humans on the global environment have reached unprecedented levels, increasing the need for society to strive to live in a sustainable manner. Many issues facing the environment have a biological basis. Thus, an understanding of basic biology is necessary to understand and address many environmental issues. This course will cover the fundamental biology involved with five environmental issues at the global scale: climate change, excessive nutrient loading into ecosystems, agricultural production, chemical contaminants, and loss of biodiversity. Specific biological principles to be covered include energy and nutrient mass balance by organisms and ecosystems, homeostasis and organismal physiology, and population dynamics and conservation biology. Prerequisite: A minimum grade of C- in BIOL 208, or any 100-level GEOL, and CHEM 112 or CHEM 115

BIOL 207 - 01 Genetics Ecology Evolution - T - R - - - 0955 - 1135 OWS 251
CRN: 20973 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Leah M. Domine A consideration of the mechanisms of heredity, evolution, population genetics, and population ecology emphasizing hypothesis testing, case studies, and quantitative and experimental approaches to population biology. Topics include: Mendelian genetics, genetic mapping, population genetics, selection theory and the process of adaptation, speciation, macroevolution and phylogenetics, and the growth and regulation of populations. Laboratory work emphasizes techniques for data analysis, including computer simulation and modeling. Three laboratory hours per week. This course fulfills the core-area in natural science in the Natural Science and Mathematical and Quantitative Reasoning requirements in the core curriculum. Prerequisites: Co-enrollment in or previous credit for CHEM 111 or CHEM 115
