The aim of this course is to provide students with the theoretical base needed to pursue independent ecological investigations of stream environments. Students will be encouraged to read a selection of both “classic” and recent literature, and discuss these during relevant classes. Lectures will loosely follow material from Stream Ecology, by David Allan and Maria Castillo, and will also incorporate research experience from the lecturer. While no prerequisites are required for enrollment, a basic knowledge of chemistry, biology, and ecology will be useful. The course will run for 12 weeks, and lectures will be in English. Students will be evaluated by their participation in class, as well as an exam given at the end of the semester.
