BIOL 233 Environmental Problem Solving in Biology

This course explores environmental issues using an applied ecology perspective. It emphasizes biological dynamics of human populations and our impact on local, regional and global ecosystems. Topics are multidisciplinary and problem-based learning is emphasized with biological approaches. We review ecological principles in human ecosystems, then explore topics such as environmental public health, ecological risk assessment, exposure to toxicants in the environment, wildlife regulation and management and technology's role in finding solutions to food production.
