This course covers Georgia’s diverse natural communities and their plants, including our iconic oak-pine forests, precious mountain coves, prairies, high mountain summits, pitcher-plant bogs, granite outcrops and fire-dependent longleaf pine woodlands. We will discuss the environmental factors that influence the vegetation of natural communities, their ecology and how climate change affects their composition and distribution over time. Natural communities across the state – what makes them special and how to identify them – will be covered as part of this class.

 

This class is a core course in the Certificate in Native Plants.
