ENV 4030: Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems
Summer II, Fall, Spring,
$ USD 1030
This course examines agricultural and food systems from an ecological systems perspective. After establishing a foundation of basic ecological concepts (the relationships and interactions between the abiotic/non-living and biotic/living components of an ecosystem), we will investigate various applications of these concepts with agricultural systems. Consumption and production issues related to food system sustainability will be analyzed, and students will explore their own role in the food system. Field trips will provide opportunities for direct observation of (and interaction with) different approaches to food production and distribution in Costa Rica.
