BIOL 3310

FNDTN POPULATION ECOLOGY

(Lab Required) (Formerly ZOOL 3680) The study of living populations, through experimentation and theory, will be examined. Topics investigated will include population regulation, competition, predation, disease, harvest, nonlinear and spatial dynamics and individual based models. Concepts and methods are reinforced through tutorials and evaluated by assignments and examinations. Not to be held with the former 022.348. Prerequisites: a “C” or better in one of BIOL 2300 (BOTN 2370, ZOOL 2370, 001.237, 022.237), BIOL 2301 (BOTN 2371, ZOOL 2371) or AGEC 2370 (065.237); and STAT 2000 or STAT 2001 (005.200) (C); or consent of department.
