Ecosystem Dynamics

ecosystem dynamics

The ecosystem dynamics program encompasses the full range of disciplines in ecology including vegetation and wetland ecology, fisheries science, rangeland science, herbivore ecology, landscape ecology and carnivore ecology. We collaborate with researchers in other programs at ORI, such as social scientists, hydrologists, geochemists, and development specialists, to better understand how wetland-dryland ecosystems and their associated local communities of people function, with an objective of informing policy and sustainable conservation and management. The program also aims to develop capacity in Botswana by training postgraduate students in various fields of ecology through MPhil and PhD degrees.
