BI5220 - Winter Ecology

Credits: 3

This course focuses on northeastern forest and aquatic ecosystem winter dynamics. We study plant, vertebrate, and microbial adaptations to winter and snowpack environments. We consider the direct and indirect effects of ice and snow cover in the biosphere on “growing season” processes, landscape determination, and the consequent influence on conservation and management of natural resources of the New England forest.
