Ecology is the study of the processes of interactions among organisms and of organisms with their physical environment. Our study of ecology will be based on an evolutionary perspective. We will study processes ranging from the physiological ecology of organisms, to life history theory, modes of reproduction, ecology of plant and animal communities, biodiversity and conservation, and ecosystem processes. The goal of this program is to develop an understanding of the fundamentals of ecological and evolutionary processes, and to be able to analyse and critically read about issues in basic and applied ecology.
