The restoration of ecosystems involves the intentional activities by humans that initiate or accelerate the recovery of an ecosystem with respect to its health, integrity and sustainability. Students will learn to assess the health, function and value of ecosystems, with a goal of establishing restoration targets and objectives. They will explore varied restoration approaches and techniques for evaluation of success through specific case studies, field labs and field trips to restoration projects in North Carolina that will be held outside of scheduled classroom times. Three class hours, one laboratory per week. Satisfies the lab science requirement of the Elon Core Curriculum program.
