Martha Hoopes

MWF 10:00AM-11:15AM

Mount Holyoke College
This ecology course will cover the fundamental factors controlling the distribution and abundance of organisms, including interactions with the abiotic environment, fitness and natural selection, population growth and dynamics, species interactions, community dynamics, and diversity. We will address variation across space and time. The course will combine observational, experimental, and mathematical approaches to some of the applications of ecological theory, including conservation, disease dynamics, and biological control.

Prereq: BIOL-145 or BIOL-160 and at least one semester of Calculus or Statistics.; Coreq: BIOL-223L.

Biology 223 and/or Biology 226 must be taken for the Biology major.
