This course Is an interdisciplinary approach to ecology, a subset of Earth system science, that takes a holistic approach to the study of ecological systems, especially ecosystems and the biocomplexity involved. Systems ecology can be seen as an application of general systems theory to ecology. Central to the systems ecology approach is the idea that an ecosystem is a complex system exhibiting emergent properties. Systems ecology focuses on interactions and transactions within and between biological and ecological systems, and is especially concerned with the way the functioning of ecosystems can be influenced by human interventions.
This course will challenge the students understanding on the complexity of ecological systems in a biological setting. The roles species play in a ecosystems.
The diversity of subjects presented in this course will significantly contribute to the overall understanding of theory and interactions involved in biocoplex systems
God created the heavens and the earth.
Students will be challenged to learn the biocomplexity of ecological systems
The entire course will deal with the issue of how to contextualize the biocomplexity of ecological systems
Students from any and every culture will be exploring and evaluating their own contexts for Biocomplexity systems
Students will leave the course will the ability to interpret biocomplexity systems in ecology
The course will engage each students in the capcity to better understand the relationship, interaction, synergism and antagonist approaches to these concepts.
