Field Study
Workshops

Study the habitat

These are four to eight hours workshops that allow participants to learn about biodiversity and study the ecology of a habitat. Participants will also learn about various ecological sampling techniques.

These workshops can be customised to suit the learning objectives of the students.

Mangroves

  • fieldstudyworkshops-mangroves-pic3.jpg

What are mangroves? What are the challenges of living in the mangroves? How are plants and animals adapted for life in the mangroves? What are the distribution patterns of mangrove organisms? This field study workshop examines the ecology of mangrove organisms. Participants can expect to get into the mangroves while learning about animal classification and ecological sampling methods. This workshop is dependent on suitable low tides.

What are the physical characteristics of a rainforest? How do forest dynamics change in primary and secondary forest patches? What are forest gaps? Are there distinctive plants that live in these various forest types? How are plant forms related to their functions? What are the various ecological roles of organisms in the rainforest? This field study workshop examines the various interesting flora and fauna that live in the rainforest, and their inter-relationships.
