Through the scientific study of basic concepts in ecology, students apply their knowledge and scientific reasoning to the study of contemporary problems dealing with renewable and nonrenewable resources. Environmental resource problems involving air, water, energy, human population growth, and plant and animal diversity are examined in context of their scientific, political, economic and social implications. Alternatives for resolving existing problems and preventing future ones will be examined.
