Course Content

Renewable natural resources that we consume in our daily life are produced either on land or in water ecosystems. Intelligent management and use of these resources are possible only through full understanding of the ecology of these ecosystems. Terrestrial (land) and aquatic (freshwater, marine, and estuarine) ecosystems are discussed in some detail. Urban ecology and the impact of environmental pollution on natural sources are also covered.
