Course Description and Credit Information

Ecological drought describes a new emphasis on the ways that drought can impact ecosystems, from increased wildfire to losses in plant growth to altered rates of carbon, nutrient, and water cycling. The USGS communicates the regional and national effects of ecological drought to support management decisions.  There are both natural and man induced impacts to ecological drought.  Part of the this man induced impact is the construction and projects that landscape architects design.  Comprehending the role that landscape architects designs play in the much larger framework for ecological drought is vital to understanding how to mitigate this risk within your design.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand: what is an ecological drought
2. Acquire knowledge on ways that drought can impact ecosystems mainly on natural and cultural resources
3. Understand how landscape architects designs impact the framework of ecological drought
