Course Description

This course examines the fundamental concepts and principles of ecology as a basis for sustainable landscapes. Ecosystem structure, processes, dynamics, and resilience are considered as a basis for facilitating the design and management of landscapes in a variety of land-use scenarios, particularly in urban regional environments. Sustainable land-use practices based upon ecological resilience are investigated. Several ecological frameworks for sustainable landscape design and management including Adaptive Management and Collective Action are presented and analyzed.

Notes
