Scenic lakeLake and Stream Ecology covers the principles of biological, physical, and chemical processes of inland waters. Through lectures, field trips, lab exercises, and independent projects, students will address practical topics related to aquatic ecology, including sources and treatment of drinking water, differences in stream ecosystems from mountains to plains, and effects of natural and anthropogenic factors on lakes and streams.  We will study aquatic ecosystems in the area, from lakes in the mountains to rivers on the plains.
