ER 503: Restoration Ecology

This course provides advanced instruction on the ecological theory underlying restoration projects, emphasizing the unexpected connections that can have significant implications

The material in this course falls into two broad themes: ecological foundations (applications of ecology to advance restoration) and ecological practice (using restoration to solve a problem in ecology). Topics covered include ecological theories, vegetation dynamics, trophic interactions, adaptive management, and the use of decision-support tools. The course encourages you to broaden your approach to ecological restoration and deepen your understanding of the way nature works.

Dates: January 2 to April 2, 2017

Tuition: $750
