About the Course

This course provides an understanding of the abiotic and biotic factors in a watercourse that create and alter a watercourse, and how these relate to and are affected by adjacent terrestrial ecosystems. The focus is on ecological processes; competition and predation, and food webs and trophic dynamics but also nutrient transport and flow calculations are key components.

Great emphasis is also placed on practical habitat care and fish conservation, you will receive training in various methods for estimating the production of fish (electrofishing) and restoration of habitats in running water using standardized methods. Identification exercises, where you will learn to identify various benthic organisms and their ecological roles are also focused on.
