BZ3225 - Field Ecology
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
This subject will focus on learning specific techniques biologists use to describe
natural populations. Emphasis will be placed on common field techniques encountered
regularly in peer-reviewed publications in Ecology. Students will learn how to employ
these techniques in order to generate datasets, to distinguish when each technique
is required, to interpret the results in the context of ecological hypotheses and
to report these results in a professional manner. There may be additional charges
for this subject; please contact the School for details.

- to gain experience in using common field techniques to gather ecological data from
natural populations and communities, and to distinguish appropriate circumstances
for each technique;
- to develop understanding of analytical methods that accompany these techniques and
- to gain experience of the logistic requirements involved in working in natural ecosystems.
|Students enrolling in this subject should have a good understanding of ecology level
2 and quantitative methods in biology, and should have completed BZ2880 and SC2202
OR SC2209 or equivalents.
