ENV 536 - Advanced Population and Community Ecology (3 cr.)


A recitation course that builds on theory and models of population growth, regulation, community stability and persistence given global change concerns. In depth student-led discussion will focus on population ecology, including population genetics and evolutionary ecology, regulation/limitation debate, equilibrium versus non-equilibrium theory, competition theory, dynamics of direct and indirect predation, community assembly rules, and metapopulation dynamics. Literature surveys will culminate in a review paper on a population or community ecology topic and laboratory experiments will test applications of population growth models under various environmental treatment scenarios and be written as a sample of primary literature. Students who have received credit for ENV 336 or ENV 436  may not receive credit for ENV 536.
Prerequisite(s): ENV 304  /BIO 304  .
Semester(s) Offered: Spring
