BIOL 357 - Freshwater Ecology

4 Credit Hours
Investigate the relationships between water, animals, plants, and humans using the Shedd Aquarium as your laboratory. This course will introduce students to the components of a freshwater habitat and a survey of the plants and animals that exist there. Visit Shedd’s Local Waters gallery and participate in animal encounters to get an up-close look at the subjects you are studying. Two field trips will connect you to this habitat and the impacts you can have on it. Conclude the course by conducting a project to further investigate your connection to freshwater environments and increase your research skills. Contact the biology department for information and special application. This course is taught at the John G. Shedd Aquarium. Field trips required. Lecture and laboratory.
