This 5-day activity aims at offering the students the required training by combining field activities with the development of a practical project that can be accomplished in the field. This will be complemented by presentations and discussion (by the students and participants) related to topics linked to the environment under study (Lake Cadagno and its catchment area in the Piora region, Tessin).


The activity is structured around theoretical and practical parts: lessons and didactic material accompany the practical work on Lake Cadagno and in the field (physical, chemical and biological analysis; in situ hybridization, flow cytometry, etc.). The emphasis is on the detection and typing of microorganisms and their ecological role in the biogeochemical cycles of matter.
