Aquatic Botany (BIOL 4374)

September - December 2011

This course examines the relationships between algae and vascular plants, and the physical, chemical and biological properties of their aquatic environment. Specific plant adaptations to life in water, and patterns of distribution and succession in lakes, rivers, and wetlands will be covered.

Field collection of data will be done during two weekends in late September and early October at the Delta Marsh Field Station on Lake Manitoba. Participation is optional but highly recommended. A field trip fee is assessed whether or not you participate. Data and calculations will be discussed during periodic short meetings outside of classes, the time and place for which will be arranged, as needed.
