A fundamental treatment of ecological principles emphasizing the ecosystem concept, natural selection and speciation, nutrient cycles, energy relationships, limiting factors, population dynamics, and community ecology will be examined. The laboratory component includes practical studies of local ecosystems and population dynamics. There will be an introduction to field navigation techniques including basic map and compass use; introduction to air photo interpretation; basic distance and elevation estimation; and introduction to handheld GPS units.
