Biology 109 Prof. J. T. Lehman Ecological Knowledge and Environmental Problem Solving Types of Ecological Knowledge Ecological knowledge can be organized into a variety of categories. The following lists provide an outline of the forms that the knowledge can take. Most of these entries are properly regarded as theories that have been tested to various degrees of detail, and which are still being developed and refined. The purpose of the lectures identified with this subject matter is to provide an overview of the types of knowledge and theory that exist, and to explain the meaning of terms that are perhaps unfamiliar. It is not the purpose of the lectures to provide a mini-course on ecology. Individuals and single populations Uniqueness of individuals (sexual, asexual reproduction) Life history Behavior (habitat selection, mating systems, social interactions) Demography (survival, growth, birth, death, age, size) Genetics and evolution Sex ratios Dispersion and distribution

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
