This course investigates underlying processes leading to the current spatial distribution of flora and fauna across the earth. Both ecological and evolutionary approaches are used to explore the effect of physical, biological, and human cultural forces on biotic patterns across multiple scales. Geographic concepts of dispersal, migration, barriers, isolation, distance, and area help us to understand global patterns of diversity and taxonomic distribution. While the earth's patterns of climate shape global community systems, local variations of the physical environment (soil properties, moisture availability, microclimate) contribute to the formation of local community types. The course then investigates how humans have modified these natural processes and resultant patterns. A field exercise is required in which students hypothesize on outcomes of their biogeographical classification and phytosociological analysis of forest communities in Lancaster County. Readings

INTRODUCTION (Chapter 1, 2)
  • Overview: Questions, issues, and methods in the history of ecological and evolutionary biogeography, as exemplified by the works of: Lyell, Darwin, Wallace, Hooker, Sclater, Gray, Willis, Gleason, Matthew, Liebig, Merriam, Dansereau, Cain, MacArthur, Wilson, Pianka, Connell, Brown, Rosenzweig (ecological approach). Simpson, Mayr, Darlington, Croizat, Brundin, Rosen, Nelson and Platnick (systematic approach).
  • Physical factors that limit plant and animal ranges: solar energy, seasonal temperature distribution, moisture distribution, soils, topography, wind; ocean currents, light, salinity, depth/pressure. Biotic processes that limit geographic ranges (Chapter 4): niches (Hutchinson), productivity, food, predation, competition, facilitation, (Vandermeer; Werner), demography, genetics.

    BIOGEOGRAPHY: Lecture 6 Communities
    Study questions for lecture 5:
    How do the questions of ecology and biogeography differ with respect to geographic and temporal scales?
    How do different interests in the theory of evolution affect the uses of ecological data by biogeographers and ecologists? Geographic limits of distribution and species interdependencies.
    e.g., biotic effects on physical factors:
    Atmospheric oxygen
    The role of algae in the PreCambrian
    Soil development
    Nitrogen-fixing bacteria and mycorrhizal fungi
    Communities may be located individually in time and space
    Clements (1616)communities have interlocking species and functions.
    Emphasis is on positive correlations in occurrence Gleason (1917), Whittaker (1975)communities are shifting associations. Correlations are often through uncontrolled variable effects. Biogeographic generalizations about plant and animal associations: Biomes are large, defined classes, not individuals: e.g., coral reefs, deserts, tropical rainforests

    It is recommended that you only use the inclonometer data for constructing cross-sectional profiles. The dumpy level data is for noting only. The main idea was to demonstrate the use of the dumpy level, which is problematic in dense vegetation.

    The main objective of the program is to provide training to individuals associated to research, industry and resource management. The curriculum includes a sound knowledge of ecosystems and biomes, ecosystem management, techniques for ecological impact assessment, and basic tools for research, and teaching at college and undergraduate levels. The five researchers at the Station are part of the graduate supervisor staff. To enter the M. Sc. graduate program, the students need to have an undergraduate degree in biology or a closely related discipline, have a supervisor and develop a proposal of research dissertation. They will also need to have an interview, foreign language and general knowledge tests in Mexico City. Nevertheless, the research and teaching program, lasting two years, can be taken entirely at the Research Station. Many researchers from nearby universities in Mexico and the USA are involved in joint research, and will offer short courses and seminars as part of the program Tutors are fully conversant in english and most of the reviewed literature is also in english. This Master program is also linked to other graduate programs through convenia that UNAM has signed with most universities abroad. For foreigners interested in the ecology of desert and tropical communities -and a warm, truly different cultural setting- this program offers a unique opportunity to earn a high ranking degree in ecology.
