About this app

This App contains ecological field studies techniques that can be conducted in wild nature by non-professional researchers - school and university students together with their teachers, single beginning investigators, families, amateurs of all ages.

It includes 40 environmental study lessons (see below) divided by four seasons (Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer) and covered a wide variety of activities in nature. These activities (lessons) focus on five main themes (subjects) - landscape, botany, zoology, water ecology and environmental monitoring.

The list of all topics with their annotations you can found at http://ecosystema.ru/eng/eftm/manuals/

These lessons promote a wide variety of outcomes which correspond to established educational standards in many countries. The ecological field study activities address content standards in the areas of earth science, life science, biology, ecology and the nature of science. Intellectual skill development includes questioning, data collection, analysis and drawing conclusions.

This App promotes understanding of ecosystems and the protection of the environment through the training of teachers in specific field study techniques, the education of young people in ecology concepts and issues and the sharing of ecological study results between colleagues.

This App is addressed to the middle and secondary level science teachers and students, and for all those who would like to investigate local wild nature, to share ecological and cultural information and work together to help create a better environment.
