This course takes you to the heart of the 'why' and the 'how' of natural history. It will provide a platform for you to continue to study, understand and appreciate everything from garden birds and their behaviour, plants and the ecology of their pollinators, fungi and their pivotal role in the functioning of the ecosystem, to leaves and their industrious manufacture of the stuff that makes the world go round. There is a beauty, not only in recognising the living components of our natural world, but also in understanding the physical and chemical processes, which underpin life, and the evolutionary thread that binds all of its parts in time and space.
