Course Overview

Presenter: Larry Weaner, FAPLD

Our opening presentation will examine the species traits, vegetative patterns, and ecological processes found in spontaneous plant communities. Each will be followed by an example of its direct incorporation into a landscape plan, planting protocol or management procedure. The plant traits described will include habitat fidelity, growth pattern, spatial and temporal niche, and proliferation strategies. The patterns and processes explored will include disturbance, succession, competition, and relative ecological stability. 

Attendees will receive a 100+ page, login-protected course manual.
