Taiga excursion

The first course in the master’s programme is Ecology (5 credits) which includes the one week Taiga excursion. The goal of the excursion is to familiarise both foreign and Finnish students to forests and bogs of several national parks and one strict nature reserve, representative of the at present rare taiga habitats in southern Finland. Also natural springs, eskers and sites of bog restoration and prescribed burning of natural fire areas will be visited. You will also get to know other students in the programme during the excursion.
