ForBio course: Tropical biodiversity
We know less about the organisms in the tropics than in other regions, and owing to the accelerating exploitation of tropical ecosystems the need to increase our knowledge of the tropical biota is highly important.
The aim of this PhD course is to give an understanding of tropical biodiversity, with emphasis on flowering plants and birds, and the features of common tropical vegetation types and habitats. The course consists of an introductory part with lectures and exercises, and a field part in Ecuador. The field studies will give a deeper knowledge of the biodiversity within different ecosystems, practical experience of field work, and training in plant and bird identification.
Application deadline: 15-06-2012.
