BIO 225 - Environmental Science II: Environmental Geology


This course is an introductory geology course that will be a study of earth systems in relation to human activities. Earth materials as well as earth processes such as plate tectonics, biological cycles, and ocean-atmospheric systems will be studied in relation to natural disasters, consumption of resources, agriculture, climate change, pollution, waste management and other environmentally related topics. This course, in conjunction with Environmental Science I, may be used to fulfill the second of two science courses required for the core curriculum. This course can also serve as a prerequisite to three upper-level Biology courses: Ecology, Evolution, and Biodiversity (BIO 201 ); Introduction to Botany (BIO 206 ); and Ecology (BIO 314 ).
