Description

This course explores three approaches to the causality and dynamics of environmental systems, and how humans are involved and affected by these systems world-wide. It also includes an introduction to climate-driven events in human history, correlation and the limitations of statistical testing.

Key courses will be, among others:

  • The concept of causal relationships and how climate can determine vegetation type;
  • Gain an awareness of the practical aspects of converting natural complexity into decision making in natural resource management;
  • The climax concept of vegetation succession and the individualistic concept.
