Plant Ecology

This overview of plant ecology addresses the distribution and abundance of plants and their interactions with other organisms and the physical environment. We will explore factors that affect plants as individuals, populations, and communities, such as life history, resource use, competition, and animal-plant interactions (e.g., pollination, dispersal, herbivory). This Basic Certificate online core course is self-paced, with opportunities for peer discussion, expert access for questions, and field projects. A facilitator will guide you in your learning, review your assignments, and answer your questions. It typically takes at least 12 hours to complete. Download the syllabus. Registration closes on July 18, two months before access ends on September 12.
