Earth Covered with Living Things! Scientists have deter- mined that life abounds on our planet. What happens to those habitats and organisms depends on us. Over the next 16 weeks, you will be in- troduced to some of the major concepts of environmental sci- ence, including human impacts on the planet. By the end of the se- mester, each student is expected to have the ability to describe in their own words each of the major concepts and processes in envi- ronmental science. These concepts and processes will be pre- sented to you through- out the semester in lecture, as well as in the required text and online exercises. Once this knowledge is mas- tered, you will be asked to take that knowledge and apply it to solve new prob- lems on related topics on your examinations and reports. Our planet is teeming with life, both on land and in the oceans.

it at the next class meeting, via e-mail, or during office hours. I encourage questions during lec- ture. Don’t let yourself get be- hind in the reading or leave questions on major concepts un- til just before an exam. It is too much material to grasp the night before an exam! To be prepared, you will need to study 6-9 hours per week for lec- ture and another 3-6 hours per For most students taking notes fills an important need to move the material from the ears and eyes through their brain and hand in order to absorb it more effectively. Notes also provide a reminder of what was discussed and can serve to flag material that is unclear to you. Each day, reread your notes. If you can't remember or under- stand what you wrote, ask about week for online exercises, in ad- dition to class time. Familiarity with interpreting graphs is help- ful. Questions about course content, related issues, grading, study habits, etc. are always welcome. Every reasonable effort will be
