undergraduate or graduate students interested in old-growth temperate
rainforest canopy communities, as well as marine cliff ecosystems. All aspects
of this course will be conducted at or around the <st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Bamfield</st1:PlaceName>

of over 30 meters, accessed via a professionally developed system of winches,

This course will examine form, function and conservation of biologically
diverse epiphytic and lithic lower plants (algae, bryophytes, ferns and fungi),
prominent in coastal rainforest communities. Laboratory studies will emphasize
current methods of identification (taxonomic, chemical, molecular), while field
studies, conducted on and around canopy platforms and marine cliffs, will
stress ecological importance. Independent projects will provide further
opportunity for students to explore aspects of their unique ecology in the
Barkley Sound region. </span></font><o:p></o:p></p>
