verbindliche Vorbesprechung 14.3.2016 , gleichzeitig Verteilung des Kurses, Seminarraum II, Königin-Luise-Str.1-3


This course combines a block seminar and a field trip to foster understanding of stream ecosystems. We will focus on the connection between abiotic habitat and the associated biodiversity, the intriguing ecological adaptations of invertebrates to this particular habitat, the functions of streams in the aquatic/terrestrial interface (on which we all so heavily depend), the role of disturbance of rivers, and the need and legal background of river assessment. The block seminar will deploy lectures, presentations and discussions of scientific articles. close
