Program Details

Ecosystem Management

School: York University
Faculty: Environmental Studies, Sir Sanford Fleming College
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Natural Resources Management and Policy
Description: An ecosystem is a community of plants and animals (including humans) and their physical environment, functioning together as an interdependent unit. Ecosystems can range in size from as small as a pond to as large as a watershed or mountain range or desert. An ecosystem is dynamic and ever changing: every instant, every day, every season, every year. The approach to the study of ecosystems is based on whole ecosystem function, rather than on single elements or species in isolation.

The objectives of ecosystem management blend long-term needs of people and environmental values so the land will support diverse, productive ecosystems and sustainable ecosystem processes. Some key concepts in York's ecosystem management program are: conservation, ecological restoration, park management, and wetland rehabilitation.
