BIOL 420 - Limnology

(4 credits)
Prerequisite: BIOL 100 with a minimum grade of “B-” or BIOL 102 with a minimum grade of “B-” or BIOL 121 with a minimum grade of “C-“; and CHEM 132 or CHEM 142; and MATH 140/140E or MATH 150 or MATH 141 or MATH 161/161E
Limnology examines the interaction of physical and chemical processes in freshwater ecosystems and how they influence populations of freshwater organisms. Laboratory exercises will focus on a field project requiring sampling and analysis of water chemistry, bacteria, phytoplankton, zooplankton and macroinvertebrates. Students must expect to spend extra time outside of class on the collection and analysis of laboratory project data. Two hours of lecture and one four-hour laboratory session per week. May be taken for graduate-level credit.
