BIO 3220 - Ecology I Fieldwork


Prerequisite(s): BIO 1330 /BIO 1340 ; BIO 1350 /BIO 1360 Co-requisite(s): BIO 3210 .
This innovative course takes place in ample and diverse environments within the greater Fort Wayne area. Designed to complement the ecosystem-centric course, ECOLOGY I, this field work course leverages relationships with more than ten governmental agencies or private units to accomplish real-world interfaces. Students work directly with regional experts in weekly investigations; work is outdoor regardless of weather. Getting dirty in the rivers and fields brings relevance and applied learning in areas of land use, wetland restoration, flora maintenance, and species diversity. Students study organisms, collect data sets, scrutinize prior analyses, and propose solutions to environmental challenges while regional experts advise. Credit(s): 1
