The growing need for the application of ecological principles to our human role in the environment, including topics such as habitat alteration and fragmentation, introduction of exotic species, ecological economics, the importance of diversity, and extinction will be discussed. Multiple field trips will be included outside of scheduled class time. Prerequisite: BIO 1570 or (BIO 1575 and BIO 1580); Eligibility: ENG 1530. Master Course Syllabus

Botany — 3098
BIO 2670 – 4 credits
Rebecca L. Nystrom

Using a classical taxonomic study of the botanical realm, students will gain an understanding of bacteria, phytoprotists, fungi, and the true plants, and explore the ecological, evolutionary, and economic significance of these organisms. Emphasis is placed on the morphology, anatomy, physiology, behavior, and ecology of botanical organisms through the study of cells, tissues and organs, life cycles and reproductive strategies, evolutionary relationships and trends, taxonomic classification, and related contemporary issues. Laboratory includes off-campus field trips and outdoor fieldwork assignments. Prerequisite: BIO 1570 or BIO 1575; Eligibility: ENG 1530. Master Course Syllabus

Sustainable Food Production — 3222
BIO 7008 – 1 credit
Pamela L. Stoleson

Students will take an interdisciplinary approach to the study of sustainable food production. Emphasis will be placed in the importance of reducing the negative global ecological impacts of industrial food production by using more sustainable methods. To achieve these goals, students will design and build a functional aquaponics system in the roof top greenhouse on the Science Center. Students will also learn about the importance of composting and get the opportunity to create their own composting system. This course is designed to be taken in conjunction with the introduction to environmental science class and allow students to further explore some of the topics introduced within that course.
