AGSC 5320 - Wetlands Ecology and Management (3)

The course provides an intermediate introduction to wetlands ecology and management. Course materials will provide students with a broad understanding of the function and ecological importance of wetlands. This course will focus on a variety of topics, including wetlands ecology, biology, management, condition assessment, delineation, and construction and mitigation. Students will be encouraged to answer biologically-relevant questions, including, “what ecological benefits do wetlands provide”, “what types of flora and fauna are dependent on wetlands”, “how can management be incorporated to maintain healthy wetland environments”, “what actually constitutes a wetland”, and “how can we determine biological integrity”.
