Impacts of Ecosystems on Human Health and Well-being
How do humans depend on ecosystems for their health and well-being?
- Pick a human health issue and construct an argument tying it to the environment (e.g., water-borne disease, food poisoning, air quality, dioxin, UV radiation).
- Evaluate the claims in a recent paper about the relationship between biodiversity and human disease risk.
- Create a sustainability plan for a managed ecosystem (e.g., agro-ecosystems, forests, urban park).
