Making Ecosystems Healthy Again
Why do we need parasites? What would happen if we finally got rid of mosquitoes? Much has been learned in recent years about how species interact in ecosystems, and we can now begin to answer questions such as these. This course will discuss recent ideas on how species interact to promote healthy ecosystems. Learn about the roles of ecosystem engineers, keystone species, mutualists, facilitators, competitors, predators, parasites, decomposers, and others, to arrive at a better understanding of how healthy ecosystems function and how we can make our ecosystems healthy again. This information will be directly applied to local ecosystems and natural resource issues.
