Environmental Biology Preparation Program. Our course will act as an introduction to this exciting interdiciplinary field. We will focus on the origins, functions, relationships, interactions, and natural history of living populations, communities, species, and ecosystems in relation to dynamic environmental processes. Presenters will touch on the following areas: applied ecology, restoration ecology, molecular and microbiology, climate studies and meteorology, energy and environmental management, sustainable development, biodiversity and conservation, hydrology and water management, geology and earth sciences, genetics, biochemistry, evolution, botany and biotic relationships, zoology and marine biology.
Environmental Biology is a vast area of science. This survey will seek to explore both its depth and breadth. Experts from major universities and industry will give lectures and workshops on issues in this wide-ranging field.
