General Ecology (Bio 160) is an upper division core course that provides students with an understanding of the fundamental processes that influence the distribution and abundance of organisms, the interactions among organisms, and the role of organisms in the flux of energy and cycling of matter. Because virtually all ecological systems are affected by humans, this course also highlights human interactions with the environment as a context for understanding ecological principles. In addition to focusing on the subject of ecology, this course will emphasize scientific thinking and problem solving. No matter what your area of study, an understanding of ecology will make you better biologists and more informed citizens.
