Section I (9 lectures) - Terrestrial systems ecology & Marine systems ecology
Section II (4 lectures) - Life history ecology
Section III - Habitat systems ecology
Landmark Literature Seminars
In four seminar sessions we will discuss fundamental papers that have shaped the development of the science of plant ecology.
Practical exercises will relate to the three Lecture Sessions. Those relating to Session I will focus on marine systems ecology using microcosms and dynamic modelling of these microcosms to explore feedback controls of ecosystem dynamics.
Terrestrial ecology exercises relating to Sessions II and III will explore habitats from various ecological perspectives relating these to plant traits, plant structure, plant composition and community assembly.
