  • Explain the significance of natural history and contrast the diversity of life-history strategies and habitats as it relates to the structure and function of communities and ecosystems.
  • Apply ecological principles to contemporary environmental problems, including climate change and loss of biodiversity.
  • Use experimental and synthetic approaches to analyze and identify patterns and processes at various scales of ecological organization.
  • Combine tools and basic concepts to identify the causes and consequences of complex ecological relationships.
