GEOG 4170 - Landscape Ecology


Landscape Ecology is an applied science that focuses on the development, consequences, and management of environmental pattern - the spatial distributions of species and the environment resources upon which they depend.This course explores the reciprocal relationship between pattern and process: how pattern is created on the landscape, its implications for populations, communities, and ecosystems, and how spatial pattern changes through time. The specific role of humans in creating and altering landscape pattern is examined.
