SEFS 501 – Forest Ecosystems: Community Ecology

Autumn Quarters (5 credits)
Forest Ecosystems: Community Ecology (SEFS 501) is a 5-credit graduate course designed to provide students with a foundation in ecological theory as well as a deep understanding of current topics in the field of forest ecology. We take two weekend-long field trips early in the semester where we explore forest ecosystems in Washington and collect data to be analyzed throughout the course of the quarter. Upon completion of the course, students should be well-prepared to develop their own research and contribute to advances in ecology.
