Transylvanian Ecology course
The Transylvanian Ecology course which is run alongside the biodiversity survey teams in one of the study villages, is designed to give volunteers an understanding of the cultural and ecological history of the region, of the overall research and survey objectives, and of the specific surveys and taxonomic groups that the teams will be focusing on.
