Module overview

A 5 day field course held in Bolonia on the Andalucian coast of Southern Spain, within the Estrecho natural park. The field course will take place during the Easter holidays, when there is a large diversity of flora and fauna to survey. As a residential field course, you will be able to immerse yourself in research, undertaking a research project of your own design, to test a novel ecological hypothesis. You will then collect, analyse and interpret your data, producing a written report and a conference-style presentation. Throughout the module you will keep a field notebook to record your project’s development, data collection and interpretation.

Teaching sessions will be accompanied by practical work which involves animal observation, with alternatives in place if required to meet minimum learning outcomes.
