​Ecology is the branch of biology that deals with the relations of organisms to each other and to their physical surroundings. Ecology topics include pollution, erosion, land use, energy resource depletion, overpopulation and the effects of unguided technological development.

Ecology courses are listed under the four-letter rubrics (course prefixes) ECOL.


North Lake College science students benefit from fully equipped laboratories and free science tutoring. Ecology students can also study natural habitats at an outdoor learning center, join an environment-focused club or study in Hawaii. Many students take ecology courses at NLC before transferring to a four-year university to complete a degree in the sciences.
