MTO 339 - Biometeorology

Course Objectives

Biometeorology is concerned with the understanding of the interaction between living organisms and variations in atmospheric processes. The course covers phenology, environment, climatic change and related effects, urban meteorology and the interactions between the living organisms and meteorological/climatological factors. Main aim of this course is to define the possible spatio-temporal effects of meteorological variables on plants and animals. Ultimately, societal consequences of the atmosphere-related changes in biophysical and ecosystem processes may be assessed.
