Invasive Species: Evolution, Ecology and Management

This course is designed to provide students with an up-to-date perspective on invasive species. The first half of the course will cover characteristics of successful invaders and the ecological processes that occur when a non-native species is introduced into a new habitat. There will also be an extensive review of the pathways that lead to the introduction, evolution and spread of invasives from both the past and present. The second half of the course will cover invasive species impacts and the issues of invasive species control and management. Course literature will be a mix of recent peer-reviewed articles, reports and landmark papers.
