Online Courses: AMNH Seminars on Science: Water: Environmental Science
Grade Level: College, Elementary School, High School, Informal Education, Middle School
Water — its location, condition, and use — is a critical environmental issue. Central to all ecosystems, water is essential to life as we know it. It shapes our planet on every level, from the chemical properties of the H2O molecule to the central role of water in global climate. This course will focus on why water is such a critical resource, the impact of human consumption on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the social, economic, and environmental...  [view full summary]
Water — its location, condition, and use — is a critical environmental issue. Central to all ecosystems, water is essential to life as we know it. It shapes our planet on every level, from the chemical properties of the H2O molecule to the central role of water in global climate. This course will focus on why water is such a critical resource, the impact of human consumption on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the social, economic, and environmental implications of water management.

Along with a solid grasp of these water-related issues, students should come away grounded in the science that underlies all environmental studies. They will be able to: 1) understand the interrelationships between living things and the ecosystems they inhabit; 2) analyze environmental problems caused by changing natural conditions and by human activity; and 3) evaluate ways to resolve and/or prevent these problems.

CEUs and graduate credits available. Each course costs $495. Graduate credit is available at an additional cost. For more information go to http://learn.amnh.org.

Grade Level: College, Elementary School, High School, Informal Education, Middle School
Did you know that you're rarely more than six feet away from a spider? Or that these abundant predators—the largest entirely carnivorous order of animals—structure the terrestrial food chain? In this seminar, Dr. Vladimir Ovtsharenko, Research Scientist in the Museum's world-renowned spider lab, introduces the study of spiders. As an example of how to study invertebrates, he explains the importance of counting and cataloging spiders, how each new...  [view full summary]

In this seminar, Dr. Vladimir Ovtsharenko, Research Scientist in the Museum's world-renowned spider lab, introduces the study of spiders. As an example of how to study invertebrates, he explains the importance of counting and cataloging spiders, how each new species is a treasure, and why he has devoted his career to studying them.

Online Courses: AMNH Seminars on Science: The Diversity of Fishes
Grade Level: College, Elementary School, High School, Informal Education, Middle School
Fishes were the first creatures with brains and bony jaws. But their incredible diversity—fishes make up half of all vertebrate species alive today, and live everywhere from mountain streams to ocean depths—makes it easier to determine what's not a fish. This seminar explores this paradox by demonstrating how ichthyologists pursue the evidence through the study of evolution, diversity ecosystems, and biogeography.
