BL 120 - Food: Environmental and Human Impacts

(3.00 cr.)

The development of agriculture was one of the great innovations in human history, allowing our species to expand to the current population size of over six billion. However, this change in diet has had broad implications for human health and the health of the Earth. This course investigates the science and issues involved in food production. Topics include the ecology and physiology of nutrition; evolutionary changes in the human diet; food and the environment; the impact of diet on human health; and social justice issues related to food production and accessibility. This course serves as a core course in the natural sciences or as a free elective for biology majors. Closed to students who have taken BL 117 . One weekend field trip to the Chesapeake Bay is planned. IES
