Disease Ecology (BIOSC 1400)
This field course will take an ecological approach to the study of infectious diseases. We will explore relationships between parasites (pathogens), their hosts and the environment in which they interact, with the objective of developing an understanding of how parasites (pathogens) spread through, persist in, and impact host populations. The course will include lectures, student-led discussions, field work, and lab-based activities.
