Ecosystems and Sampling

ENVR 2012

Course description

Students identify the components of ecosystems and analyze the interrelationships of biotic and abiotic factors. By measuring the physical, chemical and biological parameters, students assess the health of both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Students participate in the planning, sampling, collecting, measuring and evaluation of various environmental parameters. Industry experts and in-field activities support student learning by providing examples of sampling equipment and approaches. A fall field camp provides students with a unique opportunity to collect and analyze a variety of data in order to assess how various parameters affect ecosystems.
