GE 420 Ecohydrology (Fall: 3)
Hydrology (GE 170, GE 203, or GE 297) and ecosystem science (GE 202 or BI 201), or
by permission of instructor.
This interdisciplinary course will explore the hydrologic mechanisms that
underlie ecological patterns and processes by examining climate-soil-vegetation
dynamics. Drawing extensively from the primary literature in lectures and
discussions, we will cover ecohydrologic interactions at various scales
in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, including drylands, grasslands, forests
and woodlands, lake margins, streams and rivers, and wetlands, among others.
Ecosystem management and anthropogenic perturbations to ecohydrologic dynamics
also will be discussed.
