This course covers Georgia’s diverse natural communities and their plants, including oak-pine forests, the barrier islands, coastal marshes, high mountain summits, pitcher-plant bogs, granite outcrops, and fire-dependent longleaf pine woodlands. We will discuss the environmental factors that influence the vegetation of natural communities, their ecology, and how climate change affects their composition and distribution over time. Natural communities of the Coastal Plain – what makes them special and how to identify them – will be emphasized.
