The module is intended to give students in-depth knowledge on plant determination and the diversity of plants. Students shall increase their knowledge on species and learn and improve their abilities in plant determination and plant conservation. Subjects and methods relevant for nature conservation are emphasized. Along with these, students shall improve their systemic thinking with relation to nature in northwestern Germany and its flora. Students learn about plants and how to group them according to their phylogeny and evolutionary adaptations, so they can pass this knowledge on to others. Competence in assessment is conveyed in the areas of diversity and natuer conservation to sensibilize students for a respectful treatment of nature and passing on this ability to others. Finally, we will discuss sustainable use of plants and habitats and their restoration.
