Techniques for recovery of Diadema antillarum
Taught at the Mote Marine Tropical Research Laboratory, this course guides students through the complexities of managing the principles of ecological succession as a means of achieving ecological restoration.  Field exercises in data collection and seral stage determination are related to successional forcing functions.
