Ecosystem Design Through Propagation of Native Plants (ER502)

Upcoming Events

Jan 10
Ecosystem Design Through Propagation of Native Plants (ER502) University of Victoria Ecological Restoration Program Jan 10, 2022 : 1:15 pm to Apr 7, 2022 : 1:15 pm

This is an advanced online course on ecosystem design that considers the ecology and reproductive biology of plants when restoring ecosystems. In this course, we’ll examine the principles and ethics of native plant selection, harvesting and propagation to meet site-specific design objectives such as which species need to be closely matched genetically (geographically) for the propagated stock.

Other course topics include:

  • pollinators
  • peripheral populations
  • dispersal agents
  • hybridization.

We’ll also explore the implications for green or living roofs and the impact of climate change.
