Restoration ecology is the scientific study of repairing damaged ecosystems. This course will introduce the theories, principles, and regulations that guide restoration practices in a variety of ecosystems. Students will examine the philosophical base of restoration, as well as the social, biological, and political forces that impact the success of restoration. Students will be able to link such conceptual and theoretical ideas to real-world applications. Labs will involve field trips to sites that are undergoing restoration and learning from practitioners in the field.
