The fields of ecology and landscape architecture grew up together in the late 19th century. Their close alliance was nearly lost in the mid-20th century but has since been rediscovered as interest in ecological landscape design and sustainability has grown. Students in this course will explore the basics of plant ecology and the plant communities of western Pennsylvania and then learn to apply these ideas to the designed landscape. A field trip to a new plant community based landscape will help students see how these principles can be applied.
