Vegetation Ecology is a survey of physical and biological processes that control the distribution and dynamics of vegetation. Through fieldwork and individual projects, students will gain hands-on experience regarding concepts and field methods in vegetation science. Based at the CU Mountain Research Station, the class will spend 3 weeks exploring the ecology of the region – from Great Plains grasslands to the Continental Divide, with an emphasis on dynamics of upper montane, subalpine, and alpine landscapes.
