Collaboration in Teaching Biodiversity Courses: Masters in Biology, FMIPA UNEJ, and FMIPA UB

Master of Biology FMIPA Jember University and Master of Biology FMIPA Brawijaya University held a collaboration to teach biodiversity courses online (15/9). Prof. Dr. Amin Setyo Leksono from Brawijaya University, as the speaker, delivered material on animal population estimation methods. “We need an animal population approach first, both census and sampling,” he initially said. Continuing the census requires a lot of personnel to count all the flora in an area. Meanwhile, sampling can be done using direct or indirect analysis.

Prof. Amin continued direct sampling itself, divided into several methods. “There are quadratic methods, transect lines, exploration and exclusion methods, and finally we have to calculate the population size,” he continued. For indirect methods, there are several methods, including traps, concentration calculations, trace counts, and interview methods. The conclusion from the initial session was that the benefit of animal estimation is knowing population dynamics patterns, including influencing factors. “We come to know the potential of each type, its role and benefits, and finally, what policies to take for this population,” he concluded.

Ethics and Skills Lead Niam, an FMIPA Chemistry Alumni, to Become a Quality Manager at Puslit KoKa Jember

“UNEJ FMIPA alumni have good logic that other graduates don’t necessarily have, because the emphasis in a job is logical thinking,” began Muhammad Bahrul Niam, Chemistry Department Alumni, at the FMIPA Alumni Sharing event (8/9). Niam, as he is familiarly called, tells of his struggles while studying at FMIPA, starting his career, and now holding a position at Pusat Penelitian Kopi dan Kakao Indonesia. “I was one of the last residents while studying, but my determination to get a job was so high that I moved to Surabaya,” he said.

Niam continued that carrying out work requires a little “pencitraan“, of course supported by qualified abilities in the field of work pursued. “The image here is to show that we are also capable, that we can, of course, with the support of the skills we have, and I have applied that in Surabaya until now,” he said. The FMIPA UNEJ Alumni Sharing was attended by 30 prospective graduates and female graduates who will take part in period 2 undergraduate and postgraduate graduations at the University of Jember for the 2023–2024 academic year. Present at the event were the leadership of Dean of FMIPA, the leadership of study programs within the FMIPA environment, and ORMAWA FMIPA functionaries at Jember University. Continue reading
