Ecology: Ecosystem Dynamics and Conservation

American Museum of Natural History & Howard Hughes Medical Institute


Course Description:
This course is an introduction to ecology and ecosystem dynamics using a systems thinking lens. Through a case study on Mozambique's Gorongosa National Park, learners will explore how scientists study ecosystems and investigate the complex array of factors that inform management efforts.
