New Course this FALL- Landscape Ecology

Hi everyone,

I hope you are enjoying summer! Have you thought about returning to Gettysburg yet? Well, I have some great news. As you have probably already heard, we will welcome Professor Andy Wilson to the ES department this fall.  He will be teaching a new course, ES 304- Landscape Ecology. Registration adjustment is open NOW, so I strongly encourage you to sign up for the course.   See below for a description.



ES 304- Landscape Ecology

Analysis of ecological patterns and processes at the landscape scale.  Lecture and laboratory provide a comprehensive introduction to this rapidly developing field in ecology.  Studying ecological processes at large spatial scales has been facilitated by the development of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and more specialized computer programs.  This course provides an opportunity to develop GIS skills and gain experience in analysis of spatial environmental and ecological data.  Emphasis on practical learning through laboratory exercises and coursework.

Another new course to consider for those of you interested in Environmental Health (offered through the Anthropology Department):

ANTH 250 B Culture and Medicine

Sarah Principato, Associate Professor

Chair of Environmental Studies

Gettysburg College

Gettysburg, PA 17325
