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:
- Defining feasible restoration goals at local to regional scales
- Designing projects to restore multiple species and ecosystem services
- 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).
Lecture: Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:00-10:20am
Lab: Mondays 2:00-5:00pm
PLS 163: Ecosystem and Landscape Ecology – Winter Quarter
How do we fit all of the pieces together to understand and manage our changing environment?
Integration of ecological concepts to understand and manage ecosystems in a complex and changing world. Emphasis on interactions among biotic, abiotic and human factors and changes over space/time. Local to global controls over water, carbon and nutrients across ecosystems/landscapes.
Lecture & Discussion: Mondays and Wednesdays 10:00- 11:50am
