A46 ARCH 560ATrees, Soils, & Systems: Introduction to Arboriculture3.0 Units
Description:Trees play a significant role in the overall ecosystem of our planet. They function both globally as well as microscopically. There are finite, quantifiable aspects to how a tree develops, yet there are also environmental and human factors that can disturb or interrupt normal functions and patterns. It is the charge of the designer to delve into the science of trees in order to better inform our design solutions and make appropriate sustainable choices. The course objectives are to make the student familiar with the anatomy of trees, to understand soils and their effects on trees and vice versa, to increase their abilities to identify trees, especially during the winter months, to understand the business of how trees are managed, whether it be growing, maintenance or specification of appropriate local nursery stock and to gather knowledge of trees and their relationship in our sustainable environment. Each class will have an informal lecture component that will present the latest in technologies of arboriculture practices. The class readings and assignments will correspond with the lecture topics and a subsequent discussion will follow or be intertwined into the lecture presentation itself. The application of the information will be in clear, concise weekly exercises. There will be several field trips to the Missouri Botanical Garden, a trip to Forest Park to look at the varied tree habitats and what worked and what is not working, as well as a trip to a local tree nursery.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
