701-1410-01L  Quantitative Approaches to Plant Population and Community Ecology

SemesterSpring Semester 2021
LecturersJ. Alexander, T. Walker
Periodicityyearly recurring course
Language of instructionEnglish

AbstractThis course presents leading problems in plant population, community and ecosystem ecology and modern tools to address them. Topics include parameterising models of plant population dynamics, using biological networks to investigate species coexistence, exploring the physiological and functional basis of plant life history strategies and quantifying how plants influence ecosystem functioning.
ObjectiveStudents will attain deep insight into topics at the cutting edge of plant ecological research, whilst developing specific skills that can later be applied to basic and applied ecological problems.
