-  PLEASE REGISTER IN CONS 310 sec 201 Anthropogenic climate change has already risen the global temperature nearly one degree, with far more radical warming predicted in the coming decades. With this elevated temperature regime come shifts in frosts, precipitation, storms and extremes. Alongside these major physical impacts many aspects of ecological systems are changing. This course will build on the fundamental organizing units of ecology: individuals, populations, species, communities and ecosystems to build a framework to understand what has shifted in the last 40 years and what we may expect by the end of the century. This class will be lecture and discussion-based with students expected to actively participate and work with one another in and outside of class on course projects. Knowledge of fundamental concepts in ecology and evolution will be key for keeping pace with the course. Pre-reqs are one of BIOL 121 (Genetics, Evolution and Ecology) and/or GEOB 207 (Intro to biogeography) or permission of instructor.
