Semester: 
Spring

Subject Name: 
Biological Sciences
Course Number:

Institution: 
Mount Holyoke College
Landscape ecology is the intersection between geography, ecology and spatial analysis. We will explore the spatial patterns of ecological processes. Where do the patterns originate? Why do these patterns and processes matter and how do they change over time? We will apply these inquiries to discover, for example, whether or not there are sufficient habitat corridors on the landscape to allow the northward shift of bird distributions given climate change. Topics will be explored in this seminar course through short lectures, discussions of research papers and through interdisciplinary, project-based activities analyzing real data sets using state-of-the-art landscape analysis software.
