Course description
An introduction to the main principles of ecology, the science of the
interactions of organisms with each other and with their environment. The course
covers community and population ecology, and provides an emphasis on how
ecology relates to other areas of biology, and to contemporary human and
environmental issues.
Ecology is the interdisciplinary scientific study of the interactions between
organisms and the interactions of these organisms with their environment. A
conceptual understanding of ecology is found in the broader details of study,
*life processes explaining adaptations
* distribution and abundance of organisms
* the flux of materials and energy through living communities
