Basic knowledge of taxonomy + determination of mainly invertebrates, basic skills in faunistic field methods, L Animal Ecology
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
Module contents
L Special Aquatic Ecology
Ecology of typical floodplain water systems (mainly oxbow lakes bodies and temporary water bodies); description of the decisive processes in floodplain and water system dynamics as well as the expres-sivity of the (faunistic) biodiversity; description of the ecological conditions and colonisation process-es relevant to questions of nature protection, aspects of biodiversity as well as habitat preference and population 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 opinion on the project
