Earth Systems: Biosphere and Global Change explores the origin and evolution of life on Earth, its history, and how life has interacted with Earth systems throughout its history. Students will become familiar with the biomes of the world, ecological processes within those biomes, the biological communities that inhabit them, and how ecological processes lead to evolution over time. Throughout the course, we will examine how human society interacts with the biosphere, including how global change is both generated by and responds to the interaction.
Co-req: ENVI.2070L Earth Systems: Biosphere and Global Change Lab, and Kennedy College of Science majors only.
