We live in an astonishingly diverse world, with an estimated seven million species sharing the planet with us. Although the majority of these have never been formally named or described, it is clear that much of this biodiversity is now in severe decline as a result of human activities. Understanding the nature of this loss, its implications for the continued functioning of ecosystems, and the services that natural systems provide humankind is of paramount importance.


This course carries credit points under the nationally recognised Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS). We offer a flexible, part-time route to academic qualification. For further details see the section ' Qualifications and awards'.

Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
