GES 708 - Advanced Ecology

[3]
The objectives in the course are to provide a survey of the historical and current ideas that have created community ecology and to critically evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of each idea in order to gain an understanding of the factors that generate and limit biodiversity. Upon successful completion of this course, students will practice critical thinking, gain an appreciation of the history of the field, and obtain a sense of the future trajectory of community ecology. Students will be expected to demonstrate a synthetic and practical mastery of the subject by critically discussing the literature and through quantitative analysis of ecological datasets.
