This course introduces ecological structure and function of the major aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems of subtropical Florida. The class begins with an intensive weekend of lectures on the ecological principles that pertain to the ecosystems of south Florida. Another weekend day is spent evaluating written work, culminating with an environmental debate. Based on their preferences, students are assigned ecosystems for which they will be responsible for leading the class on interpretive tours of the biological, chemical and physical factors that influence their ecosystems. The class will travel to the Florida Everglades and Keys to explore the variety of subtropical forests, glades, marshes, swamps and marine communities.
