BIOEB503

Terrestrial Ecology

This paper aims to develop students' understanding of ecological theory with a focus on terrestrial ecosystems, and of how theory can inform ecosystem management and our understanding of environmental problems. As well as exploring some of the big questions in contemporary ecology (both nationally and internationally), the paper focuses strongly on developing the skills needed by research students. The topics covered span a gamut of biological organization from organism-level (physiological ecology) through to ecosystems.
