PL5001: PLANT ECOLOGY

15 credits

Level 5

First Sub Session

·      Integrated lectures, field trips, data exercises and discussions provide a broad overview of theoretical plant ecology and its practical applications.

·      You will participate in data collection in sand dune, heathland and woodland habitats and become familiar with a range of plant species. Key skills in vegetation survey, monitoring and research are taught.

·      Class field data are used as the basis for understanding ecological processes and for learning vegetation analysis methods.   

·      You will practice writing skills in a data report and essay, supported by “clinics” and by individual help to students. Detailed feedback will help your writing in subsequent courses.
