E2S2 Biosphere

Course Code: ES2003

E2S2 Biosphere aims to provide a basic introduction to biological systems and to the origin and evolution of life on our planet, its distribution and the importance of maintaining biodiversity. Throughout the class there will be a focus on the relationships between biological and non-biological components of ecosystems and on the effects of human activity on the biosphere, including, but not limited, to the effects on biodiversity, climate change, and sustainability. By the end of the course, you will gain a fundamental understanding and appreciation of ecological systems, interactions between the biosphere and other earth systems, and how human activities are changing these interactions. The course is a required course for all ASE undergraduate students and is a pre-requisite for ES2303 Introductory to Ecology
