Alpine and Glacial Ecology in Norway
A lot of science is done out in the field and learning field techniques and experiencing biology in the field is really important.
The module is a field course based in Finse, Norway. Six days are spent in the field observing habitats typical of the Low alpine region. A major feature of the course is the opportunity to directly observe succession occurring at the snout of retreating glaciers. There are three related components the course:
- Observation of unique alpine and glacial habitats
- Practical experience of ecological sampling and analysis
- Student centred learning in group projects.
