Principles of Ecology

About Principles of Ecology


The course deals with the definition of ecological terms, description, and discussion of ecological parameters at the level of population, community, and ecosystems. It also covers topics on the effect of biotic and abiotic factors on organisms and their adaptive response to such challenges. The course deals with the different biomes of the world and also the different ecosystems of Ethiopia. At the end of the theoretical part, students will visit a selected natural environment and will engage themselves in a mini-project of field observation for few days that will reinforce understanding the concepts and principle they discussed in theory.
