TM Ecology and Nature Conservation

BIO-M-TM-ENC

Detailed module description - pdf

Prof. Dr. Peter Poschlod

Module contents
Lectures
  • Population ecology of plants (plant strategy concepts, life history of flowering plants – pollination ecology, Ecology of dispersal in space and time, germination ecology, lifespan, clonal reproductionetc., PVA – population viability analysis)
  • Ecology of plants (theoretical concepts, climatic parameters, edaphic parameters, disturbance ecology; ecological groups, indicator values and their application
  • Ecology of habitats of central Europe
  • Nature conservation/conservation biology (history of nature conservation, situation and aims of nature conservation on a global and national scale, nature conservation laws, nature conservation data; instruments of nature conservation and landscape planning)
Seminar
  • Presentation and discussion of a research based topic in the field of ecology and conservation biology, especially actual aspects
Module components
  1. at least two lectures in the field of ecology and nature conservation (for a selection see LSF)
  2. one seminar in the field of ecology and nature conservation (for a selection see LSF)

In the seminar a seminar presentation has to be held and registered in Flexnow as an ungraded study achievement (Studienleistung).

Module examination
