Design Principles for Natural Processes - online course - Sept to Dec (UVIC)    Tue Sep 5 to Sun Dec 10, 2017, Victoria, BC

ER 501: Design Principles for Natural Processes
Dates: September 5 to December 10, 2017; tuition $750

This is an advanced course on ecosystem design that considers the ecology and reproductive biology of plants when restoring ecosystems. In this course, we’ll examine the principles and ethics of native plant selection, harvesting and propagation to meet site-specific design objectives such as which species need to be closely matched genetically (geographically) for the propagated stock.

Other course topics include: pollinators, peripheral populations, dispersal agents, and hybridization. We’ll also explore the implications for green or living roofs and the impact of climate change.

The course includes an overview of the goals and foundations of ecological restoration and how restoration nurseries grow appropriate restoration species.
