BIOL-3310 Advanced Ecology
This course presents basic concepts of ecology of communities, with an emphasis on tropical forests. The course includes a first phase of topics related to the community, its properties, components, and development through time (succession and paleo-environments). The second phase includes mainly topics related to patterns of diversity and wealth of species in tropical communities, with an emphasis on issues of seed dispersal and forest regeneration. The course also shows evolution approaches that have been developed recently to understand the assembly of community and neutral theories.
