CPHYS 4101 Natural History of an Ecosystem

This interdisciplinary, inquiry-based, field study, lab science course examines the geological, ecological, and cultural environments of natural and human communities inhabiting ecosystems. We work from the assumption that human and natural communities in physical environments interact reciprocally, as a single ecosystem. Because of their self-contained locations, ecosystems are unique environments for field study which reveal the full perspective of human impact on the natural world.
