ENST 305 Agroecology
How can agricultural systems be designed to nourish a growing human population while sustaining the natural resources upon which agriculture ultimately depends? In this course, students will learn how to use ecological principles as a lens to understand the food system from farm to fork and back again. Topics will include crop genetic resources, soil and pest management, the role of animals in agriculture, and energy in the food system. Class meetings will incorporate significant student participation including presentation and discussion of primary scientific literature. Laboratory meetings will orient students to agroecosystems in the region and provide opportunities for hands-on learning and investigation.
