ENH 160: Restoration Ecology – Spring Quarter

How do we repair the damage that humans are doing to our environment?

In this course, we study basic principles from the fields of: physiological, population, community, ecosystem, and landscape ecology. Students will apply these principles to:

  1. Defining feasible restoration goals at local to regional scales
  2. Designing projects to restore multiple species and ecosystem services
  3. Managing ecological systems to promote restoration and minimize further degradation, particularly in a changing environment

This course centers around a class project, where students act as consultants on a local site in need of restoration (see syllabus for full details).
