Description

This course covers current advances in terrestrial ecology with a focus on population and species ecology. It covers species interactions, such as herbivory, pollination, seed dispersal, and epidemics. Examples concentrate on interactions among vascular plants (trees and shrubs), vertebrate and invertebrate animals, and pathogens, and interactions of those species with the physical environment.
