Book now

Saturday January 29th and Saturday February 5th

10.00am – 12.30pm 

Tutor: Anne Riddell

Introducing the science of ecology through four ecosystems, four ecological topics and four questions asked by ecologists, as well as key species that inhabit those ecosystems and some of the methods we use to study and draw conclusions about them. We’ll be looking at:

  • wild flower meadows, populations and how we count how many organisms there are
  • coppiced woodlands, biotic/abiotic factors and what influences those organisms’ presence or absence
  • rocky shores, zonation, and how organisms adapt to their environment
  • wetlands, spatial ecology and tracking individuals, how they use their environment and how much more can we learn from looking at individuals as well as wider populations

This series of four x 1hr Zoom lectures runs over two consecutive Saturdays and two habitats, topics and questions will be examined on each morning.
