Following the two successful symposia on Winter Limnology 2008 (Kilpisjärvi, Finland) and 2010 (Liebenberg, Germany), a third winter limnology symposium will be arranged at Finse Alpine Research Center 12-16 April, 2012.
This course is for master students and bachelor students in their final year. Students get aquainted with winter survival in plants and many different groups of animals (e.g. Arthropods, Cervids, aquatic animals) as well as humans. The book "Life in the cold" by Peter J. Marchand is used as the curriculum in addition to lectures given by various invited specialists. Students also get hands-on experience with snow profiles and conditions.
