Forest ecology is a science concerned with the form and function of forest ecosystems. As a science, it recognises that forest ecosystems vary in their ecological characteristics with location, and that the forest in any particular location is continually changing – sometimes quite rapidly and sometimes very slowly. Current theory and application of forest ecology will be covered in a series of lectures to allow you to explore the science of forest ecosystem dynamics. Discussions during the lectures will encourage inquiry and informed argument. One main assignment based on actual forest ecosystems will allow you to demonstrate individual thought and analysis.
