Skills to be acquired in this module
Special Aquatic Ecology The module imparts general and special knowledge of the ecology of typical floodplain water systems with special emphasis on floodplain dynamics and the resulting processes related to those water systems. Floodplain development and (faunistic) biodiversity are further main topics comprising e.g. the explanation of ecological conditions and colonisation processes and referring to questions of nature protection, examining the habitat preference of selected species and describing the population development of typical floodplain species.
E Special Aquatic Ecology Familiarization with the course of a planning process on the basis of an exemplary project in Northwest Germany; independent development of a concept of methods for assessing the faunistic actual state and subsequent realization in the field; scientific documentation and ecologically relevant assessment of the situation in the project area using selected indicator groups (scientific determination of selected taxa); preparation of final expert opinions on the project
