University of Maryland GEOL 636 Ecosystem Restoration Entire Course
A further understanding of ecosystem functions across biomes/geologic settings, and developing practical applications in ecosystem restoration strategies through a graduate-level project. Specific case studies and discussions will be aimed at understanding how structure can influence biophysical and biogeochemical processes supporting ecosystems, and then describes how rates, timing, and location of physical, chemical, and ecosystem processes can be altered by different restoration strategies to enhance ecosystem services. A project will then be used to apply restoration principles toward solving tangible environmental problems and communication with managers.
Note: This entire course includes discussions, assignments, course projects, and exams.
