Landscape Ecology (BIOL 4160/5240)

Diversity of Landscapes

In this course we look at the application of basic ecological principles to landscape issues and the interactions between spatial pattern and ecological processes.

BIOL 4160 is the undergraduate section and BIOL 5240 is the graduate section.

Students are challenged with class activities, critique write-ups, readings with class discussions, hands-on exercises using GIS and models, and issue debates.
