Heath biotope study

• We observe the biotope with all our senses. We start working in small groups to explore one aspect of the heathland: the soil and its relief (what is a podzol soil?), vegetation (which typical heath plants do you find?) and trees, traces from animals (who is scattering around all these droppings?), insects and animals living in and on the bottom (the funnel trap of an ant lion, the little holes of dung beetles).

• We learn why heathland is a semi-natural landscape and get a better understanding of the evolution and coming into being of the landscape. Also cultural-historical aspects and nature management are discussed.
