Ecosystem Ecology

Ecosystem ecology asks how abiotic and biotic processes come together to shape the diversity in form and function across Earth’s ecosystems, from the flow of energy and materials through the environment, to how communities of organisms interact with their environment. This course examines the factors that influence ecosystem structure and function: the processes that shape how energy, water, carbon, and nutrients cycle through ecosystems, the role of disturbance on these processes, and feedbacks from human-induced global change.
