This approach gives an integrative study of the interactions of living systems with the physical world. Particular emphasis will be placed on conservation at the local level (Pocono Mountain and Lehigh Valley) and how these issues relate to global concerns. Topics include aquatic as well as terrestrial ecosystems, pollution, and the distinction between conservation and preservation. Prereq.- BIOS107. Core: D.
