S603: Elephants, rhinos, and ants: Ecology of the Kenyan savanna in Splash! Fall 2009 (Oct. 10 - 11, 2009)
We’ve all seen elephants and lions in zoos or on TV, but do you know what they do when roaming across the savanna? What plants do they eat? And what happens when they disappear from an ecosystem? In this class, we’ll take a look at what makes an African savanna tick: we’ll start out learning about the main savanna animals, and how the animals and plants work together to create this beautiful and iconic ecosystem. The class will end with a discussion of how people – both in Kenya and around the world – are changing this ecosystem.
