For you readers that are interested or curious to what I’m actually doing in England it’s a bachelor programme (3 years, 2013-2016) in Ecology at UEA (University of East Anglia). The university, which had it’s 50th anniversary in 2013 that I’ve started is to be found in Norwich in Norfolk, about 2-3 hours from London with the train.

So what exactly is ecology? Well, UEA’s description is as good as any (better than mine) and goes as following:

“Ecology is the study of how organisms behave, interact with, and evolve in response to their physical and biological environments. It seeks to explain the diversity, abundance, and distribution of organisms, and appeals to those who are interested in the richness of the biosphere and concerned with how it is affected by human activities. Ecology, and its sister disciplines, evolutionary biology and behaviour, therefore provide the basis for understanding how life’s diversity originated and will respond to climate change, pollution, the destruction of natural ecosystems, and the concomitant loss of global biodiversity“.

The rough outlines of the programme in the course are like the figure bellow, which I’ve collected from their home page (link).

For dere som er interessert eller nysgjerrig i hva jeg faktisk skal gjøre i England så er det et bachelor programme (3 år, 2013-2016) i økologi på UEA (University of East Anglia). Universitetet, som hadde 50 års jubileum i 2013, befinner seg i Norwich i Norfolk som er ca. 2 timer med tog fra London.

Så hva er økologi? Vell, UEA sin beskrivelse er nok en god del bedre enn min egen, og går som følgende: “Ecology is the study of how organisms behave, interact with, and evolve in response to their physical and biological environments. It seeks to explain the diversity, abundance, and distribution of organisms, and appeals to those who are interested in the richness of the biosphere and concerned with how it is affected by human activities. Ecology, and its sister disciplines, evolutionary biology and behaviour, therefore provide the basis for understanding how life’s diversity originated and will respond to climate change, pollution, the destruction of natural ecosystems, and the concomitant loss of global biodiversity”.

Programmet i økologi er i grove trekk som figuren under, som jeg har hentet fra hjemmesiden deres (link).
