BIOL 401 Field Natural History Mosaic
Cross-listed with ENST 310-01.Permission of Instructor Required.Part of the Natural History Sustainability Mosaic During the past fifty years, people have become nearly isolated from their natural environment. Fewer farms, urbanization, the expansion of suburbs, air conditioning, mall shopping, posted land, less access to waterways, forgotten victory gardens and a host of other societal changes as created a generation that is suffering from Nature Deficient Disorder. Even the science of Biology has become more concentrated in the cellular and molecular realm than the field sciences. This course will explore the realm of field biology and natural history in the Carlisle area and familiarize students with some of the common forms of life outside the classroom. Being familiar with the organisms that compose ecosystems enables a student to have a better understanding of the principals of ecology.
