BIOL 296 Ecology of National Parks

This course will utilize a national park and the surrounding ecosystem as a case study to explore the science of ecology and ecosystem biology. The course will address the methods scientists use to explore natural systems. The course will also engage students in the use of basic research techniques and data analysis. We will emphasize ecological issues that have meaning for the management of public lands and thus address the application of scientific models outside of the discipline.
