Course Description

Ecology “happens” in bogs, lakes, marshes, fens, and forests - not in a classroom. Fulfill your EEB or PitE requirement directly at the source in beautiful northern Michigan.

You will study the fundamentals of ecology – at the individual, population, community, and ecosystem level – through field trips and data collection in diverse habitats.

(Equivalent to EEB 281 and 282)
