Ecosystems and Biomes – Tuesday, December 10
Students review characteristics of ecosystems and biomes throughout the world. We
distinguish between weather and climate, and investigate how ecosystems are
connected and influence each other.
Throughout this semester, students study environmental processes and ecological systems through hands-on activities and experimentation related to the study of organisms and their environment. We explore biodiversity across the plant and animal kingdoms, learn methods to study diversity and behavior, investigate adaptations allowing organisms to thrive in their habitat, and look into abiotic factors influencing ecosystems. All lab costs are included in registration fee. Course enrollment is limited to 12 students.
