Special awards went to Chloe Durrant for her enthusiasm for her first encounter with a Hermit Crab, whilst Rianna Read and co.
won the competition to collect and identify a small sample of every plant and animal specimen on the shore. Having been introduced to the various abiotic data collection devices, the group did one final walk around the grounds to explore all of the possible habitats, as well as carrying out an investigation between managed and grazed grassland.
The reward of a delicious dinner after their long day in the manor’s Old Ballroom was certainly worth the wait.
Additional cakes brought to the classroom in the evening session also helped ease the pain of late night statistical analysis!
The afternoon’s activities were somewhat more treacherous.
Prior to running a transect line up the shore, a rock pool hunting competition commenced.A final visit to the succession plots and the sycamore woodland meant that the group was fully prepared to design their independent project.In the afternoon, three students headed to the meanders whilst James Cuxson bravely signed up for a rocky shore project.Study examples will largely be sourced from northern ecosystems and current research topics at Ui T.Students should also have acquired introduction to basic ecological modeling.Day five involved a busy classroom session where lap tops were put into full use.Some students had progressed onto 16 pages of their write-up by the end of the morning as well as completing their statistical tests, something that they had never dreamed of possibly achieving at the start of the visit!When only Scandinavian students attend, language of instruction is Scandinavian.
