Course Level

Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
  • Goal 02 - Critical Thinking
    • Gather factual information and apply it to a given problem in a manner that is relevant, clear, comprehensive, and conscious of possible bias in the information selected.
    • Imagine and seek out a variety of possible goals, assumptions, interpretations, or perspectives which can give alternative meanings or solutions to given situations or problems.
    • Analyze the logical connections among the facts, goals, and implicit assumptions relevant to a problem or claim; generate and evaluate implications that follow from them.
  • Goal 03 - Natural Science
    • Demonstrate understanding of scientific theories.
    • Formulate and test hypotheses by performing laboratory, simulation, or field experiments in at least two of the natural science disciplines. One of these experimental components should develop, in greater depth, students' laboratory experience in the collection of data, its statistical and graphical analysis, and an appreciation of its sources of error and uncertainty.
    • Communicate their experimental findings, analyses, and interpretations both orally and in writing.
  • Goal 10 - People/Environment
    • Explain the basic structure and function of various natural ecosystems and of human adaptive strategies within those systems.
    • Evaluate critically environmental and natural resource issues in light of understandings about interrelationships, ecosystems, and institutions.
    • Propose and assess alternative solutions to environmental problems.
    • Articulate and defend the actions they would take on various environmental issues.

Ecology is the study of the relationships between organisms and the environment. In this course, students will be introduced to the major themes of ecology, which include energy and nutrient cycling, distribution of organisms in the environment, population dynamics, interactions within and among species, evolution and adaptation, communities, and ecosystems. Special focus will be on the aquatic and terrestrial plant and animal communities and geological features of the Rainy River Basin and Voyageurs National Park. Hours per week: Lecture-3; Lab-2. MNTC: 2/3/10
