Ecosystem functions and services (Vorlesung)

Dozent/in: Amit Kumar, Vicky Temperton

Termin:
wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 10:00 - 11:30 | 18.10.2021 - 04.02.2022 | C 11.320

Inhalt: The module „Ecosystem functions and services“ comprises two parts: a set of lectures and a set of seminars. The lectures will be introduce you to the global terrestrial biomes (from the tropical rainforest to the tundra), their most important ecosystems and their functions and services. In the seminar, students will select one aspect of ecosystem functioning and services and present it to their fellow students for discussion. Each presenatation is based on one or two original scientific papers about biodiversity& ecosystem functions or biodiversity & ecosystem services . Overall the topics covered will show the diversity of perspectives and interpretations of the importance of biodiversity for how ecosystems function and the services they provide. [This semester we will focus on the provisioning of ecosystem functions and services from a global science-policy persoective and take a close look at the topic of what may be the best foci to mitigate climate change and biodiversity loss. You will see that it is not a simple topic.] The module therefore includes discussions of important and up to date literature in the research field of ecosystem functioning and services. We will critically discuss the research findings in respect to their application in nature conservation and ecological restoration. You will learn the main characteristics of the global terrestrial biomes and the environmental variables shaping them, and the ecological theories that can be tested in them as well as sustainability relevant issues related to global change and ecosystems.

Methods of Environmental Sciences (Vorlesung)

Dozent/in: David Abson, Jelena Bäumler, Jacob Hörisch, Daniel J. Lang, Jacqueline Loos, Berta Martín-López, Julius Rathgens, Vicky Temperton, Henrik von Wehrden

Termin:
wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 14:15 - 15:45 | 18.10.2021 - 04.02.2022 | C HS 4 (Umbau HS-Gang bis 30.09.22) S. Kommentar

Inhalt: The module conveys basic knowledge and practical research examples through which the diversity of methods available in environmental & sustainability science is exemplified and contextualized. The module presents an overview of approaches to obtain, analyse and interpret data within science, and embeds these into a broader ontological framework. While the focus is generally on how methods can aid and enable the production of knowledge, a connection to the history of science, including the origin and development of each specific method is part of the lecture.

Ecological restoration for sustainability (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Milena Groß, Berta Martín-López, Vicky Temperton

Termin:
wöchentlich | Freitag | 10:15 - 11:45 | 18.10.2021 - 04.02.2022 | C 11.117
Einzeltermin | Fr, 17.12.2021, 12:00 - Fr, 17.12.2021, 13:45 | C 11.117
Einzeltermin | Fr, 14.01.2022, 12:00 - Fr, 14.01.2022, 13:45 | C 11.117
Einzeltermin | Fr, 04.02.2022, 10:15 - Fr, 04.02.2022, 13:15 | C HS 1 (Umbau HS-Gang bis 30.09.22) S. Kommentar

Inhalt: With the increasing human pressure on ecosystems and cultural landscapes, one of the main challenges is to design and develop ecological restoration that supports the preservation of biodiversity, ecosystem services and livelihoods security. A central theme here is to integrate the ecological dimension with the socio-cultural dimension in order to create sustainable landscapes and equitable societies. Therefore, restoration does not only focus on ecological functions and biodiversity, but also on human communities, their knowledge and values. Indeed, restoration requires of society as agents of sustainable transformations. During the seminar in the second module we will examine how we can restore nature, how we can engage different social actors and how we can measure the impacts of restoration strategies on human wellbeing and biodiversity.

Inhalt: Vorlesung und Seminare haben folgende Inhalte: • Komponenten des Klimasystems • Treibhauseffekt und Strahlungsantriebe • Beobachtete Veränderungen der Klimaparameter • Die Intensivierung des Wasserkreislaufs • Natürliche Variabilität und anthropogenes Signal • Die historische Perspektive • Szenarienbasierte Projektionen in die Zukunft • Der Klimawandel in den Regionen • Verschiebung von Vegetationszonen • Auswirkungen des Klimawandels auf Lebensgemeinschaften und Populationen • Auswirkungen des Klimawandels auf Ökosystemfunktionen und Ökosystemleistungen • Betrachtung ausgewählter, vom Klimawandel besonders betroffener Systeme

Ecosystem functions and services Seminar (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Amit Kumar, Vicky Temperton

Termin:
wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 12:15 - 13:45 | 18.10.2021 - 04.02.2022 | C 11.320

Inhalt: The module „Ecosystem functions and services“ comprises two parts: a set of lectures and a set of seminars. PLEASE REGISTER ONLY FOR THE LECTURES AND THEN YOU SHOULD BE AUTOMATICALLY REGISTERED FOR THE SEMINAR TOO. The lectures will be introduce you to the global terrestrial biomes (from the tropical rainforest to the tundra), their most important ecosystems and their functions and services. CORONA SEMINAR: Groups will cover key topics in the current restoration science-policy interface related to the biodiversity and climate crises. In the seminar, students will select one aspect of ecosystem functioning and services and present it to their fellow students for discussion. Each presentatation is based on one or two original scientific papers about biodiversity& ecosystem functions or biodiversity & ecosystem services . Overall the topics covered will show the diversity of perspectives and interpretations of the importance of biodiversity for how ecosystems function and the services they provide. We will mainly be focussing on large biodiversity-ecosystem functioning experiments such as the Jena Experiment, Cedar Creek or BEF China. The module therefore includes discussions of important and up to date literature in the research field of ecosystem functioning and services. We will critically discuss the research findings in respect to their application in nature conservation and ecological restoration. You will learn the main characteristics of the global terrestrial and aquatic biomes and the environmental variables shaping them, and the ecological theories that can be tested in them.

Inhalt: s. 10634000 - Der Klimawandel - wissenschaftliche Basis und das Spektrum der Veränderungen See detailss in the lecture section. Please register yourselves for the lecture and this automatically registers you for the seminar that goes with the lecture too.
