The Biology Department organised a field trip to a freshwater stream during the Easter break.
It offered a unique opportunity for students to explore the biodiversity of aquatic ecosystems and learn field study techniques for the interactions among plants and animals species living in and around the stream. They collected water samples to analyse the abiotic factors of the stream, and identify microorganisms that serve as indicators of water quality. Through hands-on activities, students could learn about the adaptations that allow aquatic organisms to thrive in their environment and understand the importance of maintaining healthy freshwater ecosystems.
Overall, this field effectively helped students gain practical experience in field biology and deepened their understanding of ecological systems.
