ENST 276 - Plants and Plant Communities of the Hudson Valley


0.5 unit(s)


(Same as BIOL 276 ) Plants are the most conspicuous components of terrestrial ecosystems. In this course, you learn how to observe and describe variation in plant form so you can recognize locally common plant species and determine their scientific names. You also learn to recognize the characteristic plant communities of the Hudson Valley. This course is structured around weekly field trips to local natural areas. Locations are chosen to illustrate the typical plant species and communities of the region, the ecosystem services provided by plants, environmental concerns, and conservation efforts. This course is appropriate for students interested in biology, environmental science, and environmental studies, and anyone wishing to learn more about our natural environment. Mark Schlessman.

Environmental Studies majors may take this course instead of ENST 291 .

First 6-week course.

Not offered in 2017/18.

Two 75-minute periods; one 4-hour laboratory.
