GE 310 Agroecology: The Science of Sustainable Agriculture (Fall: 3)

Prerequisite: BI 201 or GE 201 and GE 202 or by permission of the instructor
Offered Periodically
The agriculture of the future must conserve natural resources and processes, and sustain yields to support the food needs of a growing human population. Food represents one of our most fundamental connections to ecosystems. In this course we will learn how the principles of ecology can be applied to the design, management, and analysis of agroecosystems and agricultural landscapes. Lectures will also cover the social, political, and economic forces that drive production systems--from the crops grown to the distribution and transportation of food around the globe.
