This course will introduce students to the field of ecology, ecosystems, global change as well as animal behavior, cost/benefit analyses related to the animal ecology (foraging, migration and reproductive decisions). Students will learn theories/models used in ecology and animal behavior and then apply these models to field projects. Students will also critically analyze how conflicting and beneficial interactions among species (including humans) are developed, established and persist in different ecosystems. In addition, they will also consider the development of energy resources and industries, such as fishing, mineral extraction, ecotourism, agriculture and hunting.
