In this course students will learn fundamental principles of ecosystem ecology and apply them to a variety of issues of global and regional concern. Traditional ecological knowledge systems will be introduced in context to their application to ecosystem ecology. Comparative analysis of terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems will highlight common themes, as well as ways in which different abiotic environments constrain or shape ecosystem structure and function. Lab exercises will focus on ecosystem characterization and classification in our region.
