ENV 224 - Introduction to Restoration Ecology

Restoration ecology is the scientific research that supports the practical application of ecological restoration. The aim of both research and application is the management and restoration of disturbed landscapes. Restoration ecology is enormously broad and few other disciplines seek to explain such a variety of phenomena at so many different levels. Students will learn concepts in natural history, ecology, environmental science, and restoration ecology within the context of the coastal ecosystems of Orange County. To facilitate this learning, the course will meet each class day at an active restoration site. Students are responsible for providing their own transportation. Letter grade with Pass/No Pass option. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
