Courses - Urban Ecology PLAN 6103   Urban Ecology
CREDIT HOURS: 3
More than three-quarters of Canadians, and more than half the world’s population, now live in urban settings. This course treats the urban system as habitat made by and for people, and takes an ecological approach to the flows of energy and materials which make urban life possible. Students study their own behaviour and surroundings, comparing their observations with data from Canada, North America, and the rest of the world. This leads to discussions about the health and sustainability of urban communities.
