Skrócony opis:

The course introduce methods of study bird ecology and behavior. It focuses mainly on breeding season of birds. Students will be acquainted with several techniques that can be useful in the field and help to manage conservation projects. They will be acquainted with the ethical and legal aspects of working with birds in the field; with the risks associated with field work and the safety principles. At the end we will focus on some examples of the bird conservation management as well as the habitat management. A case study for the Middle Vistula River will be presented.

During exercises two field excursions along the Vistula River are planned (near Łomna and in Warsaw) to compare bird species diversity between country and urban landscapes.

Metody i kryteria oceniania:

Students are required to complete a short report describing field observations of birds. The evaluation will assess the ability to describe the methodology, the results of observation, and the conclusions.

Students are required to complete the multimedia presentation of the article related to the topic (30 min). The evaluation will assess (a) the ability to work in a group, (b) form, content and the way of presentation and (c) the ability to find suitable material for presentation

Absence from classes will reduce final assessment. Further detailed assessment criteria will be given to participants during the course.
