Ecology, Natural History and Sustainability of the Tropics
BIOL 308
Spring 2007 not offered
Crosslisting: E&ES 308

Tropical ecosystems from around the world have commonalities, whether freshwater, marine or terrestrial. We will examine examples of ecological and natural history phenomena in tropical regions from around the world that exemplify the principles or organization and function of tropical ecosystems. We will also examine the effects of man-made and natural disturbance on tropical ecosystems as they impact sustainability of these ecosystems. The class will critique the nature of experiments that have been done in the tropics so as to understand the difficulty of experimentation in the tropics.
