Ecology, Nutrient Cycling and Landscape Processes G1F, 7,5 credits, BV313G

In this course you will study fundamental ecological concepts. You will also learn to recognize and describe different Swedish biotopes, plan and conduct a simple ecological survey, and read and discuss ecological research papers.
