EEB 601 PRINCIPLES AND PROCESSES IN ECOLOGY, EVOLUTION AND BEHAVIOR 1 (3-3-4)(F). Discusses principal ecological processes and interactions, both biotic and abiotic, that organisms rely on and perform to acquire the necessary energy, water, carbon, and nutrients for growth, metabolism, and reproduction. Mechanisms driving evolutionary responses at the species and population levels are discussed in the context of how evolutionary processes influence ecosystem level responses to a variety of factors, including changing climate, anthropogenic use patterns, species invasions, and nutrient cycles.
