BIOL-1322 Ecology for Non-Biologists

This course is intended to promote among students of disciplines other than Biological Sciences the understanding of ecological phenomena through the study of the interaction of organisms with their environment and among themselves. It analyzes the individual concepts associated with abiotic relationships, emphasizing on life basis and requirements. At this level, and relying on the biological notion of species, the following biotic phenomena are illustrated, competition, predation, socialization, sexual selection and reproductive modes. It also emphasizes on population dynamic concepts, community structures, successions and biogeography.
