" We will cover fundamentals of ecology, considering Earth as an integrated dynamic system. Topics include coevolution of the biosphere, geosphere, atmosphere and oceans; photosynthesis and respiration; the hydrologic, carbon and nitrogen cycles. We will examine the flow of energy and materials through ecosystems; regulation of the distribution and abundance of organisms; structure and function of ecosystems, including evolution and natural selection; metabolic diversity; productivity; trophic dynamics; models of population growth, competition, mutualism and predation. This course is designated as Communication-Intensive; instruction and practice in oral and written communication provided. Biology is a recommended prerequisite." (less)

Healthy estuaries are critical to humans and wildlife. They provide food, supporting both commercial and recreational fisheries; treat waste and runoff, maintaining water quality; protect coastal areas from natural hazards; connect bodies of water for transportation and marine operations; and nurture a balance of the food web upon which all life depends.

In this Issue, students will examine published data that address the ecological consequences of introduced species. Activities engage students in data analysis and hypothesis testing, and will increase their understanding of the complexities of ecological phenomena. This Issue focuses on ecological consequences of introduced species using several case studies - zebra mussels, brown tree snakes, fire ants, and gypsy moths. (less)
