EnviroBio Avengers! Techniques for Studying Local Ecosystems & the Impacts of Human Activities
Monday 08/14/2017 - Friday 08/18/2017
Class meets at the University of California, San Diego, 9500 Gilman Dr. from 8:30 am - 3:00 pm.
interested in learning how you can study the health of different habitats in
our community?Then EnviroBio
Avengers is for you! Environmental Biology involves the investigation to the
impacts of human actions, pollutants and other conditions on wild
communities.Although biology is
the focus, studies often involve chemistry and math to help in studying an
ecosystem.This week long workshop will involve a combination of outdoor data collection
and learning and computer-based data analysis. We will take a hands-on approach to environmental biology by
exploring onsite habitats throughout the week and conducting several studies in
the field.During the computer
component, participants will learn how to utilize the internet and other
computer sources to look at different datasets as well as learn different
analysis techniques for visualizing data.Topics will cover the biology, ecosystems and environmental health of
local habitats.We will study
human impacts in our community, learn about local ecosystems, and collect and
analyze data that helps us to evaluate these ecosystems.For example, we will collect and
analyze water samples from a local source, discuss and study the community this
source is part of, and return to the computer lab to import and graph our data.
This fun workshop will help
students learn how they can study habitats near their homes, and help them to
have a better understanding of the impacts of human activities on these
