COURSE DESCRIPTION

Ecology is the study of relationships in the natural world, many of which are increasingly being altered by human activities.  These disruptions modify the environment on a global scale, affecting populations and communities of plants, animals, and other organisms, and making Earth increasingly inhospitable for life, including for humans.  In this online course, students explore the natural world and humans’ role within it, as both instigators and managers of global environmental change.  Course content includes lectures as well as readings from the scientific literature, lay audience books, and current environmental news.
