Experimental course on a special topic in natural resources and environmental sciences. Course Information: May be repeated to a maximum of 12 hours.
This course is a comprehensive examination of environmental contaminant pathways into the environment, fate and effect of toxic substances resulting from human activities, and ecosystem effects of contaminants. Topics include an introduction to basic principles of toxicology, discussion of differences in species- response to toxicants, survey of major classes of toxicants, environmental exposures, toxicants in consumer products, and ecotoxicology. We will address research techniques for both human health and ecotoxicology, as well as measures to reduce exposure and remediate contaminated systems. Students will learn how to interpret toxicological data and analyze results. By the end of the course, students should have a basic understanding of toxicological pathways, biological effects, and environmental consequences and be able to apply this knowledge to a variety of current environmental toxicology situations. Online scheduled class sessions require each student to have high speed
