BIO 404 Ecological Action

Spring

This course will engage students in the intersection of ecology, environmental science, and society.  Students will work in teams to integrate the knowledge and skills they have acquired at York College to investigate a specific ecological problem in our local community.  Some examples of potential projects that the class could address are stream restoration, developing species management plans, or using technology to monitor populations.  Teams will be actively applying problem-solving strategies, performing background research and collecting and analyzing data using methods from multiple disciplines.  These activities will provide the foundation to evaluate potential solutions.  Each team will present their recommendations to the community as a written plan and oral presentation. Prerequisite: BIO 290 .  Biology majors only.
