Vegetation succession. Measurement of abiotic variables, distribution and
abundance of plant species from pioneer zone to climax community.
The study includes a climax community problem-solving exercise. Option to
consider modification of the coastal ecosystem by human activity.
Aspect, altitude, soil type and micro-climate and their effects on the
structure, biomass and productivity of an Aleppo pine/Holm oak woodland.
The study can be developed to compare two Aleppo pine/Holm oak woodlands of
different ages and focus on the effect of environmental factors and human
activities in modifying succession.
All fieldwork is supported with secondary data. These
fieldwork studies take a full day.
