1.88 Physical Ecology at the Microscale
Designed for students in fluid mechanics and engineering who want to explore applications of physics and fluids to biology and ecology, and for students in the biological sciences seeking to understand the physical constraints of life at the microscale. Topics include mass exchange and flow at the scale of microbes, motility and chemotaxis, encouter rates and predation, and small-scale turbulence. Emphasizes the application of physical and fluid dynamical principles to life at the microscale, in particular (but not limited to) aquatic systems.
This class has no prerequisites.
1.88 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by Staff.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
