The principles of the biotic and abiotic components of ecosystems will be discussed, including energy flows, biogeochemical cycles, soils, structure of ecosystems, biodiversity, population and community ecology, and genetic diversity. The impacts of human initiated changes on ecosystems, including climate change, deforestation, soil loss, species extirpation and extinction, and species exploitation will be discussed. The concepts and techniques of conservation, restoration, and rehabilitation of ecosystems will be applied through practical examples.
