Ecosystem Design Through Propagation of Native Plants - online course - Jan - April (UVIC)    Tue Jan 2 to Sun Apr 1, 2018, Victoria, BC

ER 502: Ecosystem Design Through Propagation of Native Plants
Dates: January 2 to April 1, 2018; tuition $750

Ecological restoration is a rapidly changing subject. Practitioners and professionals faced with restoration of degraded ecosystems are seeking ways to restore these systems in the face of climate change and continued urban expansion.

The traditional values and assumptions that have gone along with developments are no longer holding true. Answering the questions faced by restoration professionals requires exploring a new approach to the field of restoration. New questions need to be asked and answered as restoration takes on a much broader role in the world.

This course aims to address these new challenges to traditional reclamation and restoration by identifying natural processes involved in maintaining ecosystems and how they are recreated in restoration projects. It also addresses the element of design where a particular restoration project accommodates special requirements.
