ER 502: Ecosystem Design through Propagation of Native Plants

This is an advanced course on ecosystem design that considers the ecology and reproductive biology of plants when restoring ecosystems. It examines the principles and ethics of native plant selection, harvesting, and propagation to meet site-specific design objectives such as which species need to be closely matched genetically (geographically) for the propagated stock. Other topics include pollinators, peripheral (disjunct) populations, dispersal agents, and hybridization. Implications for green or living roofs and the impact of climate change are also explored.

Dates: January 4 to April 10, 2016
