BIOL 333 - 01 Ecology M - W - F - - 1055 - 1200 OWS 275
CRN: 40012 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Kyle D. Zimmer An exploration of the major concepts in modern ecology, including eco-physiology and adaptation, population growth and regulation, community and ecosystem ecology, and biodiversity and conservation biology. Laboratory and field work will complement these topics and will emphasize careful experimental design and statistical analysis of data. Four laboratory hours per week.

Course - Section Title Days Time Location
BIOL 209 - 01 Biology of Sustainability A - T W R F - - 0830 - 1130 OWS 250
CRN: 10084 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Kyle D. Zimmer Influences of humans on the global environment has 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 dyanmics and conservation biology. Prerequisite: C- or better in BIOL 208
