EVSC 3200: Fundamentals of Ecology
Credits: 3
Studies energy flow, nutrient cycling and allocation in natural ecosystems, organization of species at the population and community levels, and interaction between people and the biosphere. Prerequisite: One semester of calculus; recommended; at least one semester of college-level chemistry and biology with labs such as CHEM 1410, 1420, and BIOL 2020.
EVSC 3201: Fundamentals of Ecology Laboratory
Credits: 1
Field and laboratory experimentation illustrative of ecological systems, and their checks, balances, and cycles. Corequisite: EVSC 3200.
EVSC 4100: Management of Forest Ecosystems
Credits: 4
An ecosystem course which treats the ecology of forests and consequences of forest processes in natural and managed systems. The class emphasizes the "pattern and process" concept that is the central theme in modern vegetation sciences at increasing scales: from form and function of leaves and other parts of trees through population, community and landscape ecology to the role of forests in the global climate and carbon-cycling. Pre-requisites: EVSC 3200, 3400, or 3500 recommended.
EVSC 4559: New Course in Environmental Science
Credits: 1–4
This course provides the opportunity to offer a new topic in the subject area of environmental science.
EVSC 4993: Independent Study
Credits: 1–6
Specialized topics in ecology, atmosphere, hydrology, environmental geology, or environmental systems not normally covered in formal classes under the direction of the faculty. Prerequisite: Instructor permission.
EVEC 5220: Terrestrial Ecology
Credits: 4
Analyzes the patterns and processes in terrestrial ecosystems. Topic include macro- and micro-meteorological factors such as producer, consumer, and decomposer processes; hydrologic and biogeochemical pathways; and changes through space and time. Three lecture and four field or laboratory hours. Prerequisite: EVSC 3200 or equivalent, and instructor permission.
EVSC 7092: Departmental Seminar
Credits: 1
Studies current problems in environmental research management or public policy as presented by visiting speakers, faculty, or advanced graduate students.
EVEC 7100: Management of Forest Ecosystems
Credits: 4
An ecosystem course which treats the ecology of forests and consequences of forest processes in natural and managed systems. The class emphasizes the "pattern and process" concept that is the central theme in modern vegetation sciences at increasing scales: from form and function of leaves and other parts of trees through population, community and landscape ecology to the role of forests in the global climate and carbon-cycling. Pre-requisite: Introductory Ecology or Instructor Permission.
