23.05-14.06, 2019, Moscow, Russia
6th International School on Marine, Freshwater and Coastal Ecosystems
Our school is supervised by MSU academics that conduct active research in their respective fields of biology. We provide students with a unique possibility to study wide range of freshwater, transitional and marine ecosystems with the focus on their comparative analysis. We would demonstrate the importance and relevance of ecosystems approach to the modern ecology and nature management.
The school curriculum shall include field excursions, lab activities, lectures and seminars. Students will study methods of biotope description, sampling, identification of samples to the level of species, and biological drawing.

Our courses
Students will be able to compare freshwater ecosystems of the Central Russia (ZBS) to ecosystems of the Arctic area (WSBS).
Part 1: Zvenigorod Biological Station
At ZBS, students shall study ecology and biodiversity of the whole range of freshwater-bodies, from temporary ponds to the Moskva River.
Part 2: White Sea Biological Station
The coastal area of WSBS represents mosaic of different biotopes, including water-bodies separated from the sea (meromictic lakes) and estuaries. Students shall study ecology and biodiversity of the intertidal and subtidal zones, sea bottom and water column. They will collect, draw and identify representatives of phyto- and zooplancton, macro- and meiobenthos. They will reconstruct the trophic chains and networks of aquatic ecosystems using the Ecopath software, which allows to:

  • address the questions of fundamental ecological science;
  • analyze and evaluate ecosystem effects of human activity;
  • model effect of environmental changes.
