Ecology LAB is a laboratory course designed to teach ecological research methods including experimental design and analysis in a laboratory setting while examining theoretical ecology questions important in both rural and urban metropolitan sites. The nature of ecological science is interdisciplinary and the nature of urban ecology more so. Therefore, this course by necessity links empirical science with theory to explore ecology generally and urban ecology specifically. This will not be a standard laboratory course. Rather, you will design a meaningful research project that can be done in the course of the semester using proven microcosm scale designs to build multi-trophic ecological communities to test ecological theory. A major goal of this course will be to help you gain comfort with science as a process, with ecology as a science, and with laboratory methods of investigation.
