|ENV EFFECTS WATER POLLUTN
|This online course will introduce students to the impacts of water pollution on aquatic organisms and human health. It is a collaborative course, taught by faculty from three campuses (UWW, UWLAX, UWM). Students will be provided a general overview of sources, transport, fate, bioaccumulation, and toxicity of water pollutants, including legacy contaminants and emerging contaminants of concern. Students will gain an understanding of the principles of toxicity testing and how effects may be examined at different levels of biological organization (molecular to ecosystem level). Students will also learn how toxicity data can be used to regulate and reduce water pollution.
