Aberystwyth University Lifelong Learning Ecology Course

The Lifelong Learning Department at Aberystwyth University offers a wide range of courses in the subject area of Ecology. From Animal and Plant Diversity to modules on Fungi and Birds, we are sure you will find an interesting topic to study.

You can study individual modules, or you can work towards a Certificate in Higher Education in Field Ecology and then, if you wish, a Diploma.

Our courses are delivered in 3 different formats:

Self-paced online learning; delivered through Blackboard,our online teaching environment.

Face-to-face learning at various ecology venues across Wales.

Blended learning; a mix of the two, where you study a number of self-paced, online units before attending 1 or 2 days in-person teaching at an ecology venue in Wales.

B-Lines are a series of ‘insect pathways’ running through our countryside and towns. They link existing wildlife areas together, creating a network, that will weave across the British landscape. This will provide large areas of brand new habitat benefiting bees and butterflies– but also a host of other wildlife.

Big Meadow Search

A UK wide project developed by Carmarthenshire Meadows Group, to raise awareness and interest in grasslands and to record plant species.The Big Meadow Search species list is derived from National Plant Monitoring Scheme lowland grassland indicator species plus additional meadow axiophytes.
Any species rich grassland types can be searched including meadows, woodland rides, church yards, road verges, wild amenity grasslands.
All you need to do is:
- Select your grassland
- Record the location name, grid reference and date
- Amble along and make a note of all the plant species you see
- If you aren’t sure on a species, take photographs from multiple angles of the flower heads, basal and stem leaves, upper and lower leaf surface, leaf base shape and either post on our social media or email to us and we will try and help to identify
- Send your results to us and once we have finished our BMS analysis, we will send them on to your local environmental record centre (LERC)
For species accounts look at our Facebook page, Big Meadow Search, or Twitter account, @bigmeadowsearch
