The Laboratory of Ecology and Environmental Science provides an overarching view of utilizing and protecting agricultural and animal husbandry environments and the natural environment that encompasses them. They also gain the latest knowledge on the roles and functions of animals, plants, insects, and microorganisms that make up these environments. In addition, students learn about their mutual interactions and relationships with agriculture and animal husbandry, from an ecological conservation perspective.
This course helps students develop broad and systematic knowledge and skills regarding agricultural and animal husbandry environments, as well as the natural environments surrounding them. The objective is to cultivate individuals who can flexibly address various problems with the conservation, management and utilization of such environments.
