Skills to be acquired in this module
++ deepened biological expertise
++ deepened knowledge of biological working methods
++ data analysis skills
+ interdisciplinary thinking
++ critical and analytical thinking

+ data presentation and discussion (E) (written and spoken)
++ project and time management
++ statistics & scientific programming

The molecule aims at enabling students to apply theoretical knowledge to practical, hypothesis-based field studies within the scope of a seminar. The data derived from the individual projects performed are then to be documented and discussed in the form of a written laboratory course report oriented by a scientific publication and to be written in English. Several teachers cooperate to enable interdisciplinary approaches (e.g. botanical-zoological approaches).
