Tropical Rainforest Ecology

This course is derived from our main ecology training course to supply the demand for learning about tropical rainforests.


At just one unit, it is designed to introduce the learner to rainforest studies and is aimed at those who want to know more about this unique ecosystem.

Use this course to further your studies, add to existing knowledge and understanding and prepare for higher education or voluntary work in conservation management.

The course should take about a month to complete although there is no time limit. Study at your leisure and in your own time.
