NATR470 Disturbance Ecology

Disturbance Ecology examines and explores the roles that various types of disturbance play in ecosystem development, structure and function. This course will explore how the type, timing and intensity of the disturbance affect plants, animals and the ecosystem as a whole. Case studies and field trips will provide students the opportunity to compare how different ecosystems respond and adapt to disturbance, and the consequences of human change on historical disturbance regimes.
