The Bermuda Environment (ENV/BIO 221) summer course is cross listed in both environmental studies and biology. It investigates the complex ecology of the Bermuda islands, the impact that human habitation have on their natural history, and methods of addressing current environmental concerns. Major areas of study include coral reef and mangrove community ecology, fisheries and tourism impacts. The course is offered alternate summers and is taught by Donald Munson, Joseph H. McLain Professor of Environmental Studies and Professor of Biology.
