This unit will develop key conceptual issues in ecology and illustrate their applications to real-world problems in aquatic environments. Topics to be addressed in this unit include: population dynamics and links to conservation and management of key species; interactions between species and with their environments with applications to restoration ecology and recovery from disturbances; ecosystem and landscape/seascape ecology and understanding spatial and temporal processes in ecosystem management. The logic of design of ecological investigations, including experiments, will also be covered.
Research project 40%, two class tests (20% each) 40%, assignment 20%
