BIO 343 - Restoration Ecology

3 credits
Prerequisite(s): BIO 325  and BIO 325L 
Corequisite(s): BIO 343L 
This course examines ecosystem degradation due to various anthropogenic factors, and how humans can restore the structure and function of these systems, including the loss and restoration of ecosystem services. Basic ecological concepts such as succession, community assembly rules and their role in diversity, and landscape ecology will be studied in depth. Applied questions such as the role of invasive species, and the role of site-specific factors such as hydrology, topography, fire and soil are emphasized in the lecture and the field (lab). The influence of factors affecting marine systems will be examined as well. Students must take BIO 343L, Restoration Ecology Lab as a co-requisite.
