Plant community ecology is a diverse field of research with many subfields and with a number of connections between other ecological and evolutionary disciplines (biogeography, landscape ecology, ecosystem ecology, phylogeography, phylogenetics to name a few). This course aims to familiarize you with the history and central theoretical and empirical perspectives in plant community ecology while bringing you up to date on current controversies, developments, and future directions.   The course structure involves instructor and student led lectures and discussions, field and computer exercises, primary literature discussions and provides advanced training and experience synthesizing various aspects of plant community ecology.
