This unit will provide students with the opportunity to experience first-hand a field location which will be invaluable in providing them with the opportunity to be exposed to principles in classes, and then experience and test them via experiments and observations on nearby free living animals, such as humans, birds, and invertebrates. In addition, the field course allows students to experience the many other benefits of field course teaching, such as immersion in a topic for a week; experiencing the excitement and camaraderie of living and working with other researchers under field conditions; and developing an enjoyment and knowledge of animal behaviour and ecology that only comes from working in the field with wild animals. This unit will involve classes, supplemented by group experiments, and a small number of guest speakers. Students may be required to meet their own expenses on fieldwork.
2 x assignments (15%, 25%) 40%, examination 60%
