This is a foundation biology course for non-majors that places emphasis on the unifying concepts of ecology. It is intended to demonstrate interconnections between life and physical science, provide opportunity for in-depth exploration of environmental issues and establish a relevance to students’ lives. Topics include: human influence on patterns and products of change in living systems, energy, matter and organization, and human interaction and interdependence with other living systems.
The goal of this project was to research how the people living in this city have attempted to preserve a bit of the “natural” environment amidst the concrete.
