Daniel E. Schindler
Ecology, conservation, and management of inland aquatic ecosystems. Explores interactions among biological, chemical, and physical features of lakes and other aquatic habitats. Prerequisite: BIOL 180. Offered: jointly with BIOL 473.
Biology/Fish 473 (Limnology) provides an overview of the physical, chemical and biological processes that characterize inland waters. This course will introduce some of the dominant biota of lakes, rivers and streams, and how they are related to physical and chemical processes of the systems in which they reside. A series of case studies will also be presented to highlight the interdisciplinary nature of this science and its application to environmental problem solving and conservation.
