EESC 4420 Ecohydrology (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

This interdisciplinary course will explore the hydrologic mechanisms that underlie ecological patterns and processes by examining climate-soil-vegetation dynamics. Drawing extensively from the primary literature in lectures and discussions, we will cover ecohydrologic interactions at various scales in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, including drylands, grasslands, forests and woodlands, lake margins, streams and rivers, and wetlands, among others. Ecosystem management and anthropogenic perturbations to ecohydrologic dynamics also will be discussed.


Schedule: Periodically

Instructor(s): Martha Carlson Mazur

Prerequisites: Hydrology (EESC1170, EESC2203, or EESC2297) and ecosystem science (EESC2202 or BIOL2010); or by permission of instructor.
