Students return from new Tropical Ecology Field Course in Kenya
Our senior sophistor students have just returned from the first Tropical Ecology Field Course which took place in Kenya in January 2013. The course ran over eleven days at a variety of locations in Kenya and focused on the ecology and biodiversity of a range of ecosystems, including tropical montane forest, freshwater rivers and lakes, wetlands, saline lakes and grasslands. The course is available to final year students of Environmental Science, Plant Science and Zoology. The aim of the course is to provide students with a thorough understanding of the principles underpinning the ecology of tropical ecosystems.
