Teaching

courses taught

  • EBIO 4030 - Limnology
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020
    Examines the ecology of inland waters, including a detailed consideration of physical, chemical and biological properties of freshwater ecosystems: origins and major characteristics of lakes and streams, survey of chemical and nutrient cycles in freshwater habitats and survey of biotic composition of freshwater environments. Important themes in modern freshwater ecology are considered, including energy flow, trophic structure, eutrophication and management of freshwater ecosystems. Recommended prerequisites: EBIO 1210 and EBIO 1220 (minimum grade C-). Same as EBIO 5030.
