Description

For 3 days (and 2 nights - 22nd and 23rd July) a small group of students will go hiking around around Alpine botanical garden of La Linnaea, in Combe de l'A and Combe de Drône (Bourg-St-Pierre, Valais, Switzerland) accompanied by a specialist in the alpine flora.

Students will study plants in link with their projects, or the research conducted in their labs, and will prepare a presentation for the group on a publication, in relation to their research and the plants observed in the field.

Cases of plant-insect coevolution, plant adaptation to freezing in high mountains, observation of the rhizosphere, parasitism in plants, relationships between soil acidity and plant composition, climate change and morphological variations of plants due to environmental pressures will be presented and discussed. Students can access La Linnaea (1689 m), where we will identify plants and get some rest, by train, bus and on foot.

 

A moderate fitness level and adapted clothes (hiking shoes, waterproof jacket, ..) are required.
