This course will examine individual, population, community, and ecosystem processes, including the impacts of human activities at each level that influence the flora and fauna of forested and aquatic systems. The course will emphasize the influence of human activities on ecosystems and the application of ecological concepts for natural resource management. Laboratories will emphasize ecological applications to the management of resources in Georgia.
Athena Title:Ecology of Natural Resources
Equivalent Courses:Not open to students with credit in ECOL 3500, ECOL 3505H
Nontraditional Format:This version of the course will be taught as writing intensive, which means that the course will include substantial and ongoing writing assignments that a) relate clearly to course learning; b) teach the communication values of a discipline—for example, its practices of argument, evidence, credibility, and format; and c) prepare students for further writing in their academic work, in graduate school, and in professional life. The written assignments will result in a significant and diverse body of written work (the equivalent of 6000 words or 25 pages) and the instructor (and/or the teaching assistant assigned to the course) will be closely involved in student writing, providing opportunities for feedback and substantive revision.
