Before the end of term, A Level Biology students visited Camber Sands to investigate ecological succession. They rotated around three stations completing different activities which included; measuring the percentage cover of species from an embryo sand dune to a grey sand dune, finding banded and unbranded snails in various locations to carry out Chi-squared test to see if there was a difference in species distribution, and to identify species diversity within the sand on the shore line and then calculate the index of diversity.
It was a great day and the students were able to complete a practical requirement for their course.
We still have spaces available for courses starting in September 2018. If you wish to apply, please complete the online application form as soon as possible.
