The EAGLE course “Remote Sensing in Biodiversity and Conservation Science” took place in the last week of the summer term at the field research station in Fabrik Schleichach, Steigerwald. 20 biology and EAGLE students worked and lived together for one week and developed several joint ecological remote sensing projects. Beside the actual data analysis and scientific discussions also various field methods were introduced such as lighttraps for catching insects, bats were caught and bird and forest data was provided by the colleagues from the biology department (Prof. J. M├╝ller and colleagues). The students achieved impressive analysis and managed to show the huge potential of interdisciplinary research.
