The main aim is to provide a solid knowledge on both abiotic and biotic features of ecological processes considered to be common in aquatic systems.
A second goal is to develop identification ability of the main lotic and lentic species by a comparative analysis of the different life strategies and colonization patterns, and the possibility to origin more and more structured multi-species assemblanges to start ecological series.
During the course, it will be introduced methods and tools to perform aquatic investigations.
Students will receive information to design and execute sampling sessions on plankton, benthos and nekton, to analyze and show findings.
Finally students will learn to develop applicative aspects of work in diverse issues in the field of aquatic biomonitoring and hydrobiology.
