BIOL 26 Global Change Biology

We live in the Anthropocene era in which humans have an outsize effect on the environment. In this course, we will apply ecological concepts to understand the consequences of environmental changes for species and ecosystems. Through discussing scientific literature and exploring long term ecological datasets, we will investigate how humans have altered the environment and the repercussions for biogeochemical cycling and species distributions, phenology, and interactions. We will also evaluate solutions for mitigating these consequences.

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.
