“Managing Island Environments: a field study course in Madeira for B.Sc. (Hons) Earth Systems undergraduates” showcased student photography together with field notebooks and other items from an intensive field trip to Madeira in late 2016. The field trip focused on the management of island environments, examining aspects of Madeira’s geology, geomorphology, ecology, biogeography and landscape, and analysing similarities and differences between the Maltese and Madeiran archipelagos. During their visit, the students also engaged with locals, as well as students and faculty from the University of Madeira, to discuss socio-political aspects of island life.

Special thanks for their assistance in organising this event are due to Mr John J Borg, the Museum’s Senior Curator, and to the Earth Systems Association.
