          ecological  implications of golbal climate
          change.   Major  topics  include  adaptive
          strategies    of   ogranisms,   population
          dynamics,  species interactions, cummunity
          structure  and function,  biodiversity and
          productivity. A large focus will be on the
          ecology  of aquatic ecosystems, especially
          streams,  rivers and lakes.  There will be
          the   opportunity  for  some  field  work.
