ECO 1001   Ecosystem Restoration   Credits: 3

In this course, students will study and explore the interdisciplinary nature of restoration ecology as well as the different methods of various ecosystem restoration, reclamation and rehabilitation. Structural and functional attributes of disturbed ecosystems will be considered. Using Sudbury’s land reclamation, acid lake recovery, and air pollution reduction programs are used as case studies and examples of land reclamation projects world-wide, students will examine ecosystem restoration. Students will also analyze remedial treatments including soil additives, establishment of acid-tolerant grass mixtures, nitrogen fixing, soil and water pH manipulation and tree planting as well as factors potentially limiting the natural recovery of disturbed land and waters, and their interactions.
