The module will provide an introduction to practical field work, including botanical surveys and flowering plant identification, field mycology, and how these can be applied to solving practical problems of conservation management as well as biodiversity research. It will be taught by botanists and mycologists from the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and local conservationists and researchers from collaborating institutions. Study visits to biodiversity rich sites, conservation projects and some taught case studies will give an overview of the conservation management at the study site. Usually, the field skills module of the MSc in Plant and Fungal Taxonomy, Diversity and Conservation takes place in Madagascar. However, we reserve the right to change the location of this course if advice on travel from the Foreign Commonwealth Office changes, or for logistical reasons. For students unable to travel to the course location, an alternative method of assessment will be undertaken.
