BIOL 4700 - Freshwater Ecology

Freshwater ecology is the quantitative examination of major biological fresh water communities. Course discussions will delineate the physical and chemical regimes under which aquatic organisms exist.  Basic limnological processes are studied to define aquatic systems of differing physical characteristics.  Nutrient chemistry analyses of waters of varying acidity, alkalinity, and chemical loadings are related to their trophic status.  Lecture and Laboratory are taught at the Darrin Fresh Water Institute at Lake George with field activities at various locations in the Adironacks.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: BIOL 1010 or equivalent and permission of instructor.
