Part I (lecture): Understanding the scale-dependence of spatial and temporal ecological processes
Part II (seminar): Treatment of special subjects of the functional ecology of plants yields insight into current research fields.
Part III: Project assignments will introduce students to scientific work by independent planning, performance, assessment and presentation. Skills in optical and oral presentation of own and other scientists’ research results are practised in seminar papers related to Parts II and III.
