ENV 310 Freshwater Ecosystems

Focuses on the physical, chemical and biological processes that create and shape freshwater habitats (lakes, streams, and rivers).  Students will learn about the interaction of freshwater organisms with their biotic and abiotic environment and how morphological, physiological and behavioral adaptations allow for their survival in these systems. The interaction between aquatic and surrounding terrestrial systems will be studied. Students will use techniques, equipment and methodology of field biology to test hypotheses regarding freshwater systems and the major groups of aquatic plants, invertebrates, and vertebrates within local freshwater habitats.
