Course Description

BIO 125
Principles of Ecology
Fall

Ecology is the study of the relations between organisms and their natural environments. The goal of this course is to introduce students to ecological theory and empirical evidence in an effort to explain processes operating at multiple levels of organization. Levels span from individuals to populations, communities, and ecosystems. The course provides students with breadth in ecological principles spanning all of these levels, and challenges students to conduct directed research projects in the Bay Area to test their own hypotheses in an effort to explain observed ecological patterns.
