The function and structure of ecosystems are maintained largely by the interaction between plant and organisms of which animals play a major role. This course explores a set of important, representative interactions, ranging from mutualisms to antagonisms, including the co-evolutionary contexts. Lecture will provide an overview of key and necessary concepts for class discussion of selected readings and student presentations. One or two guest lectures will illustrate a specific and less studies aspect of an interaction.
