BI 136 - Ecology of the Adirondacks


Credits: 4
An introduction to the basic principles of ecology through the lens of the Adirondacks, a 6-million-acre state park in upstate New York. Students will explore the habitats of the Adirondack region, the flow of energy and nutrients through these systems, and how organisms adapt to the environment and interact with one another. Particular emphasis will be given to the way in which environmental issues such as acid rain, invasive species, and climate change affect the ecology of the Adirondacks. Several outdoor labs and one full-day field trip are required. Qualifies as an Environmental Studies Cluster B1 course and satisfies QR2.
Prerequisites: QR1
Note(s): (Fulfills scientific inquiry.)
