BIOL 442 - Population Ecology

3 Credit(s)

Population Ecology serves as a second course in ecology. A population is a group of plants, animals, or other organisms, all of the same species, that live together and reproduce. While much of biology is centered on how individuals grow and reproduce - population ecology focuses on the population as the lowest common unit of life. This course will address the fundamental ideas of population and community ecology as they relate to size, composition, and distribution of populations and the processes that determine these attributes of populations. While this course focuses on the theories and mathematical formulations of population ecology, we must remember the goal is to better understand natural populations. Fall, alternate years.

Prerequisite(s): BIOL 300  and MATH 151 .
