GE 312 Restoration Ecology (Fall: 3)
Two of the GE 201-208 series or BI201, or by permission of instructor.
This interdisciplinary course will explore the fundamental principles of
ecological restoration by examining the mechanisms underlying landscape
degradation and addressing the small- and large-scale processes that require
rehabilitation in order for restoration to be successful. We will address
both ecological and societal issues surrounding restoration, as an integrated
understanding of both is needed for sustainable solutions to emerge. Equal
attention will be given to aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Applying
theory to practice, students will develop processes for performing restoration
through group projects, case studies, and a restoration site visit.
