This course is intended for a broad audience and introduces students to North Carolina’s rich diversity of plant communities. Variations in geology, climate, soils, fire regimes, landscape positions, and other factors have resulted in the creation of distinctive ecosystems: subtropical maritime forests, salt marshes, longleaf pine savannas and sandhills, pocosins, oak-hickory forests, bottomland hardwoods, swamps, spruce-fir forests, rock outcrops and glades, fens, and grasslands. This course explores the causes and history of North Carolina’s plant community diversity.
