Note for Spring 2021: Your two course-integrated Study Tours will take place in Denmark.
NOTE: The lab course, Climate Lab, will not be offered in the spring 2021 semester. It will be offered in fall 2021 and future semesters.
In this course, gain an understanding of biology of the polar areas, with a special emphasis on the Northern Hemisphere. Learn how organisms of the Polar Regions are evolutionarily adapted to cold terrestrial or marine habitats with strong seasonality. By studying theoretical and practical case studies, gain insight into population dynamics and species richness within Denmark, and of the Arctic regions in Norway and Greenland.
