About the course

In this course fundamental ecological principles relevant to present-day climate change are introduced. The aim is to give students with a background in science, humanities, economics, as well as social, technical and political sciences the necessary biological knowledge to enable them to participate in the debate and management of climate change issues. The over-arching question is how changes in climate affect biological processes from the level of individuals up to ecosystems. The course will develop the mechanistic understanding of how changes in the climate affect species and ecosystems, and how ecosystem processes in turn affect the climate.
