Studying Ecology in Canada

Ecology students begin with common biology courses, where they learn the fundamentals of genetics, ecology, and diversity. They also take courses in diversity, microbiology, and molecular biology. Courses specific to ecology include population genetics, population ecology, and community ecology.

Students get the opportunity to specialize in certain aspects of ecology, particularly in various taxa. Studies are available in fungi, flowering plants, fishes, birds, mammals, and reptiles. Where necessary, students also take courses in biochemistry, soil biology, and wildlife epidemiology, so they can "put together" a complete picture of how ecology integrates various aspects of the biology and non-biological sciences.

Students learn how ecosystems react to the impacts and stresses of human activity, and gain abilities in the application of specific procedures that help mitigate those impacts and restore those ecosystems. These are often taught in the field where students learn to apply their knowledge in actual projects.

Ecology students also take courses on other components of the ecological management process, including environmental law, ethics, economics, and policy.

Laboratory and field studies round out classroom teaching, so students can get practical experience. Students also learn methods of collecting biological samples, including live trapping of animals; approaches to managing forests, soils, fish and wildlife populations; completing various habitat assessments and ecosystem classifications; and making remediation/recommendations.
