Excursion Synopsis
Students will discuss evolution as the driving force for biodiversity, with focus on fossil evidence and observation of Stromatolite fossils.

The effect of the environment on tree species will be studied by comparing physical and chemical conditions along a transect line, whilst also identifying species diversity along the transect.

The adaptations of two plants and two animals to the local environment will be studied in detail by looking at the organisation of microscopic and macroscopic structures in the organism.
