Ecology lab is aimed to accompany the Ecology course Bio235 and provide hands on experience with ecological methods. Ecology is the study of the interaction of organisms, populations and communities with each other and their environments. This course will focus on the physical, chemical and biological processes that determine the distribution and abundance of plants and animals. The course will include the study of natural biomes, energy flow through food webs, adaptation of species, population dynamics, nutrient cycling and ecological succession.
