An introductory course designed to expose students to environmental science with a laboratory. The lecture component will examine human interactions with the environment and their consequences for living and nonliving systems. Topics may include but are not limited to evolution, ecology, biodiversity, human population dynamics, natural resource use, pollution, environmental degradation, climate change, marine and freshwater resources, and environmental policy. The laboratory component will be in conjunction with the lecture. It will introduce the scientific method, including experimental design, sampling methods, data gathering and analysis. Laboratory and field techniques will be used to study concepts such as natural selection, climate change, biodiversity, and air and water pollution and its effects on organisms. Some labs may involve field trips to different ecosystems where various field collection techniques will be used to study ecological concepts. Emphasis will be placed on proper data collection and analysis techniques as well as representing those data in graphical form. CSU, UC (credit limits may apply to UC-see counselor)
