BI 310 - Winter Ecology


Credits: 4 credits

While Ecology (BI 233) is the study of living organisms and how they interact with the environment and other organisms, Winter Ecology explores the natural processes and phenomena of organisms in winter environments.  Animals and plants that live in our area are adapted to surviving snow, wind, cold temperatures and decreases in radiant energy and available food sources during the winter season.  Winter ecology covers these stresses that winter places on organisms and how this determines their energy use.  The students can also experience interactions with the winter environment to learn about the stresses of winter that all other organisms experience.  Winter Ecology can be substituted by majors and minors in Biology for the ES 100 requirement unless these students are required to take ES 100 as part of another major, minor or being in the Honors Curriculum.
