You can take the exam for this unit if you passed the following exam(s):
The Nature Campaign is used as an open-air interdisciplinary laboratory, where the students, guided by several teachers, tackle problems relating to land use and assessment. The collection of climatic, geological, geomorphological, floristic, vegetational and faunal data, samples of rocks, plants and animals from terrestrial environments and the development of biotic indices for the ecological assessment of fresh waters are necessary for an integrated reading of the territory. Finally, the campaign is also considered by the students as a fundamental moment in the preparation of a modern naturalist because the disciplinary notions acquired during the course of study are experimented and applied in the field.
Knowledge and understanding
The course provides:
Competences and skills
Specifically, the student will be able to:
The Nature Campaign concludes and completes the three-year degree course in Environmental and Natural Sciences. The aim is to put into practice many of the notions learned in various fields of natural sciences, with observations, recordings and evaluations of the geological and geomorphological structure, animal and plant populations and their interactions. A further aim is to simulate a professional activity, as may be required after graduation, for which a detailed report on the environmental characteristics of an area must be provided to a client.
Supporting teaching material will be available on the AulaWeb module in the form of guides and fact sheets for the different disciplines and links to map sites.

The nature campaign takes place in June, from Monday to Saturday in a natural area where the students reside for the entire period, together with some teachers who alternate according to the planned activities.
Each student is required to prepare and write a personal report on the course of the entire campaign, describing, in a disciplinary and integrated manner, the experiences made. See guide sheet for writing the report. The report must be sent by e-mail in pdf format by 30 October 2022 to Professors I. Rellini, L. Minuto, L. Galli respectively. As established by the Course Council, the evaluation of the quality of the paper and the punctuality of its delivery will contribute to the determination of the degree grade, according to a scheme approved by the CCS.
Those who intend to graduate in sessions prior to the autumn session must send the paper to the relevant lecturers no later than 15 days before the date of graduation.
The final report will make it possible to assess not only whether the student has reached an adequate level of knowledge, but whether he or she has acquired the ability to use naturalistic methods of investigation in the field independently.
Attendance compulsory as the grade contributes to the final grade of the degree.
