Course Description

This course will explore the fundamental concepts of field ecology. The goal of this course is to give students an immersive, research-oriented, hands-on learning experience that integrates the interactions of organisms with each other and with their abiotic environment in both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems in Massachusetts and elsewhere in New England. Students will learn the natural history of these habitats and their organisms, engage in scientific field research, and develop sills in data collection, analysis, and interpretation. By the end of the course, students will have a working toolbox of field techniques to ask questions in population, community, and ecosystem ecology.
