Project in Landscape Ecology

The course focus on planning and implementing a landscape ecological project. The research questions include both temporal and spatial perspectives and landscape ecological theory. The aim with the project is to investigate how landscape structure and dynamics affect ecological processes, ecosystems, plant or animal occurrences. The course includes several experimental designs for collecting data and how these can be analyzed depending on the question at hand. Particular focus is placed on conservation issues that include both spatial and temporal processes.

The course is part of Master's Programme Landscape Ecology

Planned teaching (methods) for the course, linked to Covid-19 and the Swedish Public Health Agency's recommendations, will be presented at the Department's website on February 28.

    Plagiarism and regulations for disciplinary matters

    As a student you must be conscientious about clearly accounting for the material used in the texts that are submitted for examination. To use another person’s expressions or ideas without stating the source is plagiarism. To translate and/or change some words in someone else’s text and present it as your own is also a form of plagiarism. Plagiarism is considered cheating and if discovered in an exam or paper, the exam or paper will be failed immediately and disciplinary measures may be taken.

    Any student who is caught cheating or disrupting academic activities may be suspended from lectures and exams for a period of up to six months. The Vice Chancellor or the Disciplinary Council decide whether the student is to be subject to any disciplinary measures.
