|BIOL 315 - FIELD BIOLOGY AND ECOLOGY|
(Lab) A field based lab course introducing basic skills in field biology and ecology. Through the use of keys and field experience, students will gain expertise in identifying several of the major tree species of northern New Jersey (as well as representative species of other major plant groups) and study their ecological relationships. In addition, methodologies for studying ecosystems will be introduced and several ecosystem types will be explored (upland forests, flood plain forests, marshes, successional old fields). Basic ecological concepts (e.g., species diversity, succession, species interactions) will be directly applied to analyze the field data which is collected.
