 SCI 333 - Advanced Ecology


This advanced ecology course has three main purposes:

 to provide the students with an overview of key scientific research in the field of ecology, to provide experience in comprehending, presenting and critiquing scientific results and to provide experience in writing research proposals.

Ecology is a complex science that focuses on three levels of biological organization: that of organisms, populations and communities/ecosystems. This course explores each of these levels. Therefore the course is divided into 3 “modules”. The first five weeks of the course are dedicated to autoecology (the ecology of organisms); the next five weeks to species interactions and the last five weeks to communities and ecosystems.
