BIO 340 - Ecology and Evolution (4 Cr.)

(formerly BIO 240) (GCR ENV)
The distinctive features of diverse terrestrial and aquatic habitats are examined to discover how they affect individual, population, and community processes. Ecological and evolutionary theory is used to explore the relationships between structure and function in ecosystems, and current models are used to probe the nature of population growth and its regulation. Special emphasis will be placed on environmental sustainability and how climate changes and other human induced activities may impact the ecology of organisms. The mechanisms of evolution are illustrated using examples from population genetics, speciation, and co-evolution. Four hours classroom. Prerequisite: BIO 220 . Fall semester. Noto
