Course Catalog Description:
Analysis of functioning of ecosystems primarily structured by managed plant communities. Managed forests, field-crop agroecosystems, rangelands, aquatic systems. Structure-function relations. Roles of biodiversity in productivity, resource-use efficiency, nutrient cycling, resilience. Emerging principles for design of sustainable managed ecosystems, provision of ecological services. prereq: Sr or grad student
Class Notes:
During the first 1/2 of the semester, students will be required to participate in three extended Tuesday class sections (7:30am-10:00am). These dates will be determined the first week of class.
Class Description:
This course examines the ecology of ecosystems that are primarily composed of managed plant communities, such as managed forests, field-crop agroecosystems, rangelands and certain nature reserves, parks, and urban `open-spaces?. It is designed to serve as an introductory ecology course that focuses on scientific principles, the interrelationships between the environment and human society, and the roles of science, technology, and policy in shaping societal responses to environmental challenges within managed ecosystems. The aim of the course is to train you in concepts of ecology and ecosystem management that will provide a foundation for future work with a wide variety of human-managed ecosystems. This course will explore structure-function relations in such ecosystems, emphasizing ecosystem properties such as productivity, resource-use efficiency, nutrient cycling, and resilience. Emerging principles for design of sustainable managed ecosystems and the provision of ecological services will be examined. In addition, the societal implications of these management decisions and processes will be explored. Importantly, this course focuses on several environmental issues of current major significance, including invasive species, air and water pollution, and global climate change.
