Field-Based Research: Eco Syst
Academic Term and Year
Participate in single and multi-day ecology field studies in a variety of natural habitats. Participants will take part in ecology field studies and work through all steps of the investigative process: observing, questioning, experimental design, collecting and analyzing data, and communicating results. The interrelationships of living things to each other and to their physical environment, ecological systems, will provide the content for this course. Field studies will include: a survey of forest types, investigation of food webs and analysis of trophic levels in a grassland community, population density studies, and track succession in land and acquatic communities. Much of our time will be spent outside setting up materials for scientific studies, collecting and analyzing data, and communicating results. Come ready to study ecology in the field and develop skills and lessons to get your students out investigating the ecology of their surroundings. Target audience: K-12 educators, naturalists, and environmental educators. Please note: this course can be used to fulfil requirements for the Environmental Education certificate.
