This course covers Georgia’s diverse natural communities and their plants, including our iconic oak–pine forests, precious mountain coves, prairies, high mountain summits, pitcherplant 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 Georgia Piedmont – what makes them special and how to identify them – will be emphasized.
