This is the repository for some extra materials for Ecological Basis for Environmental Issues (ECOL 1000), which I am co-instructing with Dr. Scott Connelly at the University of Georgia in Spring 2020.  Most of this course's materials will be hosting through eLC, but I'll post as much as possible here, too.

 

The purpose of this course is to lead students towards a scientific and ecological approach to understanding modern environmental issues. What can the basic hydrological cycle teach us about the "water wars" between Georgia, Alabama, and Florida? Why is natural selection relevant to food production? 

Students will engage with basic ecological and evolutionary principles, the historical of environmental conflicts, and the relevance of these issues in modern society. You can read more in the course syllabus

Students: if you have any questions, I'm happy to meet during office hours to help resolve them. More information below:
