BIO4120 field trip 2019

This year's field trip in BIO4120 is complete, introducing students to the natural variation of southern Norway from east to west and spanning as much of the NiN system as possible.

The 6-day field trip is one of three parts of the BIO4120 course, comprising one week of lectures, one field trip to anchor the students in the ecological gradient-space of NiN, and one week of training in mapping before a final exam.
