BIO5800 Biocomplexity & Systems Ecology

Course Overview

Educational Level: Graduate, Master
Credit Hours: 3 Credits
Instructor: Dr. Tracey Carrillo

Course Description:

Is an interdisciplinary field of ecology, a subset of Earth system science, that takes a holistic approach to the study of ecological systems, especially ecosystems and the biocomplexity involved. Systems ecology can be seen as an application of general systems theory to ecology. Central to the systems ecology approach is the idea that an ecosystem is a complex system exhibiting emergent properties. Systems ecology focuses on interactions and transactions within and between biological and ecological systems, and is especially concerned with the way the functioning of ecosystems can be influenced by human interventions.

How This Course Benefits Students:

Explaining and defending the faith has been a constant since the first century. A student seeking to on mission in the world can benefit from understanding the issues and approaches of the early centures of Christianity, for “there is nothing new under the sun.”

Why This Course Is Important:

The diversity of subjects presented in this course will significantly contribute to the overall understanding of theory and interactions involved in biocoplex systems
