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:
- peripheral populations
- dispersal agents
We’ll also explore the implications for green or living roofs and the impact of climate change.
