Life in a Changing Climate
Life in a Changing Climate 2023-24
School Of Natural Sciences
Module - Semester 2
The course will cover how climate change and aspects of zoology and biodiversity are connected and how they interact. Social implications of these factors will also be covered, along with potential ecosystem conservation and management practices needed to cope with a changing climate. Some ecosystem case studies will be included, for example on the effects of climate change on wetlands.
- Critically evaluate any social implications current interactions between zoology and climate change are having, and could have in the future.
- Demonstrate the ability to articulate complex scientific principles, theories and arguments through a variety of media.
- Explain in detail how aspects of zoology and biodiversity are affected by the climate, and the interactions between them.
- Have a comprehensive understanding of the conservation and management practises of natural ecosystems – in terms of aspects of zoology – to cope with a changing climate.
