Eight final year students and three teaching assistants took part in
the field course segment of the Tropical Field Ecology (TFE) module led by
Dr. Rahayu Sukmaria Hj Sukri on 29th February 2016. The field course, which was held at the Kuala Belalong Field Studies Centre (KBFSC) at Temburong, saw the students carrying out self-planned field investigations over the course of 4 days and 3 nights (ending on 3rd March 2016). Following the course structure, the final year students had already allocated time before the field course to plan out and devise the nature of their projects which include factors such as project scale/scope, aims, methodology, and feasibility among other considerations. The aim of this field course is to
instil participants with not only the experience of working in the tropical rainforests, but also the ability
to plan out investigations while being critical about its limitations, problems and associated solutions.
The course attendees were divided into two groups of four, and spent two days executing their investigation plans. The two research questions the groups wanted to investigate were:
Faculty of Science, Jalan Tungku Link, Gadong,
Universiti Brunei Darussalam, Brunei Darussalam, BE1410.
