4 credits (with lab)

(available through EDP)

Prerequisite: BIO-2145 and CHE-1031 or equivalent.

Considerable time is spent outside exploring the watersheds of the Babcock Nature Preserve in order to study succession, nutrient and energy flow, and the role of disturbance in the maintenance of forest communities.
