Online Course: Invasive Species and Novel Ecosystems

University of Victoria
Date of Event: 
Monday, September 12, 2016 - 12:00am to Sunday, December 4, 2016 - 12:15pm

This course examines the biology of invasive species, focusing on the life-history adaptations and dispersal strategies that contribute to their success at both the individual and population levels. You’ll also learn about options for control including preventative, cultural, biological and chemical methods. Finally, you’ll explore novel ecosystems that are created when invasive species insert themselves into the fabric of natural ecosystems, and the problems they pose to traditional approaches to ecosystem management such as when an endangered species becomes dependent on an invasive species for its survival.
