Session 3

Terrestrial and marine ecosystems are dynamic and constantly evolving in response to changes. Such changes happen gradually on a long time scale but with the impact of humans, changes can occur much more rapidly. Today, Europe has a highly fragmented biodiversity with a high rate of species loss. This course focuses on conservation of European biodiversity in Denmark and Poland from both terrestrial and marine aspects. We learn skills within species identification, ecosystem characterization, biodiversity loss, rewilding, and conservation.
