About Alpandino

Alpandino emerged from ALPECOLe, an e-learning course in alpine ecology jointly developed by a consortium of Swiss institutions as part of the Swiss Virtual Campus program. Alpandino is the Spanish translation of the globally applicable alpine plant ecology part of ALPECOLe. The original ALPECOLe course also offers lessons that are rather specific to the Alps or to the temperate zone and thus have not been considered for translation in the context of Alpandino (e.g. specific accounts of vegetation, animals, glaciers and history of treeline in central Europe).

Alpandino is the collective effort of the following people and institutions:
