Examines ecosystem structure, carbon and energy flow, and nutrient cycles, and how these processes respond to environmental variations. Reviews classic ecosystem experiments, and considers effects on ecosystems from human-driven environmental changes, such as climate change, air pollution, excess nitrogen use, and land-use change.
When Offered Spring.

Course Attribute (CU-SBY)
- Understand the theory and measurement of central processes in ecosystem ecology, across a range of ecosystems.
- Predict the response of these processes to variation in biotic and abiotic factors, such as light, water, nutrient supply, community structure, and disturbance.
- Apply understanding of ecosystem processes to predict the impacts of human-accelerated environmental change on ecosystem processes and function.
- Apply a quantitative approach to ecosystem biology.
- Critically evaluate literature on ecosystem ecology through regular reading assignments throughout the term.
- Synthesize information from the primary literature to address a central question of interest in ecosystem ecology.
