Pdficon small.gif Limnology Syllabus Fall 2013


Overview of Course:
The main objective of the course is to introduce you to the dominant physical, chemical, and biological mechanisms determining the ecology of inland waters. A secondary objective is to teach field sampling and research techniques pertinent to aquatic research. Classes will integrate lectures on core concepts with field and laboratory experiences In addition, an independent research project would be used to integrate concepts and also allow students to design, implement, analyze and communicate their own scientific research.
Limnology can be taught with various foci. I teach the course as an upper level ecology class focused on aquatic systems. If you have not taken ecology or evolution, you may need to do some supplementary work to catch up. See me within the first week to discuss this possibility.

  • Field and lab exercises are mandatory. Field trips cannot be made up. If for some reason you think that you will be unable to make any field trips, consult with me in advance.
    • We will leave for field trips at exactly 12 pm. Please arrive at the lab on time.
      • This is a field course. Ecologists go out regardless of the weather, and so will we. You are responsible for bringing appropriate rain or cold weather gear.

Reading:
The two texts for the course are listed below. Both can be purchased from online sources such as Amazon.com or at the UConn Co-op.
Dodson, Stanley. 2005. Introduction to Limnology. McGraw Hill. ISBN: 007287935-3
Giller, Paul & Bjorn Malmqvist. 2008. The Biology of Streams and Rivers. Oxford University Press. ISBN: 0198549772

Class requirements and grading:
You must attend each class. Your grade will be based on two exams, completion of lab reports, a group research project and participation in field and lab exercises:
Midterm and Final Exams: 50
Lab Reports (2): 20
Research Project: 20
Participation/Quizzes: 10
TOTAL: 100 pts

Notes on class requirements:

  • The two exams will cover material covered in both lectures and labs. The final exam will be cumulative. Also expect one or more pop quizzes on reading materials.
  • I require lab reports which provide succinct descriptions and analyses of data collected during lab and field exercises.
  • You will also have time to perform a field or laboratory research project, of your design but requiring my permission. These projects can be performed individually or in small groups (3-maximum). Results will be presented by all individuals during the last lab meeting.
  • Participation means showing up, completing all assigned readings on time, and actively taking part in lectures and labs.
  • All students must adhere to all safety intructions at all times, especially while on water bodies, or you will be prevented from further participation.

Policies

Lateness policy
Assignments will lose 10 percentage points for every 24-hour period that they are late. For example, an assignment that would have received a 100% had it been handed in on time will receive a 60% (an F) if it is handed in 4 days late. Only a note from a physician or the Dean sent to me in advance of the due date will be accepted as a valid excuse.

Missed field trips/labs
Missed field trips or labs cannot be made up and will result in lost points unless the absence has been approved by me at least one week in advance or with a note from the physician or the Dean sent to me in advance of the field trip or lab. If you must miss a field trip or lab because of a legitimate school-sponsored activity or religious observance, then you must seek my permission at least one week in advance. In all approved cases, an equivalent activity will be assigned.

Plagiarism/Cheating
Plagiarism means using someone else’s statement word-for-word without quotation marks (even if you cite it) or using someone else’s ideas, even if you have paraphrased them, without proper attribution of credit through a citation. The penalty for plagiarism on your research project is a zero. Do not plagiarize – I run all of your written work through software that detects plagiarism. All plagiarism and cheating will be dealt with in the severest manner possible, meaning a zero on affected assignments and referral to the Dean’s office.
