Upland Ecology Field Course (C1079)
15 credits, Level 5
Experience of a wide range of environments and habitats is essential training for any field biologist, ecologist or conservationist. This module will involve a field course to the Yorkshire Dales National Park in late June which will provide access to a variety of upland habitats and species that participants would not normally experience in the rest of their degree at Sussex.
You will develop a familiarity with the ecology of a range of habitats, an ability to identify a range of animal and plant groups to species level, and an ability to collect, analyse and interpret quantitative field data.
