EVSC 2221 - Conservation Ecology Laboratory

This course offers hands-on study of ecological science relevant to sustaining populations, species, ecosystems and the global biosphere. The laboratory includes three modules that teach the scientific method while exposing students to current topics in conservation ecology. Modules include assessment of land use change in various localities based on the students’ origin, assessment of stream health in the Rivanna watershed, and assessment of soil fertility under alternative land management. Case studies in the local community will demonstrate links between human-driven environmental change and the health of the biosphere. Offered to complement EVSC 2220, but may be taken on its own.
