Entry requirements
Basic knowledge of taxonomy + determination of mainly vertebrates, basic skills in faunistic field methods, L Animal Ecology
Skills to be acquired in this module
L 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 sys-tems.
Floodplain development and (faunistic) biodiversity are further main topics comprising e.g. the expla-nation of ecological conditions and colonisation processes and referring to questions of nature protec-tion, 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 North-west 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 as-sessment of the situation in the project area using selected indicator groups (scientific determination of selected taxa); preparation of final expert opinions on the project

L Applied Animal Ecology
Qualification for preparing a professional zooecological contribution within the scope of an expert opinion; familiarization with the most important faunistic indicator groups for scientific objectives relevant to a project
Module contents
L Special Aquatic Ecology
Ecology of typical floodplain water systems (mainly old water bodies and temporary water bodies); de-scription of the decisive processes in floodplain and water system dynamics as well as the expressivi-ty of the (faunistic) biodiversity; description of the ecological conditions and colonisation processes rele-vant to questions of nature protection, aspects of biodiversity as well as habitat preference and popula-tion development of typical floodplain species.

E Special Aquatic Ecology
Description of legal and planning procedures based on a case study; development and realization of a concept of methods for assessing the faunistic current status; scientific documentation (determination of taxa), analysis (determination and classification of species-related characteristics of the taxa rele-vant to the planning) and ecologically relevant assessment of the situation in the project area; final expert opin-ion on the project

L Applied Animal Ecology
Importance of professional zooecological contributions within the scope of ecologically relevant plan-ning; legal and qualified arguments; regulations for the conservation of species under national and international law; faunistic indication: complex of problems related to vicarious species, well-founded selection of indicator groups
Principles of developing a concept of sampling and of performing field work; description of standard methods of sampling and analysis, essential aspects of a professional zooecological contribution for an expert opinion on a project; detailed description of the most important faunistic indicator groups for scientific objectives relevant to a project
