New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2022

ENVS 80.16 Urban Ecology

Urban ecology is the interdisciplinary study of urban and urbanizing systems from local to global scales. In this course, we will focus on the application ecological concepts and approaches to the urban ecosystem, and the linkages with social and economic factors that make cities socio-ecological systems. Using an ecosystem ecology perspective, we will explore how ecological processes are altered (or not) in urban and urbanizing landscapes. Topics include: landscape heterogeneity, nutrient dynamics, altered hydrology and climate, biodiversity, invasive species, organism adaptation, air, water and soil pollution, green infrastructure, environmental justice and urban agriculture.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
