Ecological Restoration for Sustainability- project development (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Milena Groß, Amit Kumar, Berta Martín-López, Vicky Temperton, Eva Völler

Termin:
wöchentlich | Freitag | 09:00 - 12:00 | 04.04.2022 - 08.07.2022 | C 12.112 | .

Inhalt: We are currently losing pollinators, the bees and the flies and the butterflies - in our intensively managed landscapes and we need these organisms not least to feed ourselves. What can we do? Come and help us to restore, study and manage cultural landscapes. The latter provide us with food and resources whilst at the same time fostering biodiversity. It is also highly relevant for the topic of sustainably consumption, as it instills in participants the value of extensively managed landscapes that cannot provide us with huge bumper harvests abut are more resilient in face of climate change and provide much more habitat for many species to co-exist with us. One of the most important challenges of our time is how to combine biodiversity and food security, as our human population and our influence on the biophysical basis of our existence on earth increases. Many people are no longer connected to nature, and feel alienated from natural processes and places. Our activities are causing major biodiversity decline that in turn affects how our ecosystems that we depend on function and the services they provide for us humans. Although our influence is often negative, there are many ways in which we can have positive effects on biodiversity as well as ensuring food security is possible. What can we do? This course combines key aspects of biodiversity conservation and ecological restoration of degraded ecosystems with the extensive management of cultural landscapes that provides us with food and resources whilst at the same time fostering biodiversity. In this planning seminar, we will plan specific sub-projects projects (in smaller groups) in detail. Our baseline project is a wonderful cultural landscape site near the village of Wendisch-Evern, where together with the a traditional orchard club (Streuobstwiesenverein) in November 2016 we restored an apple (and cherry and pear) orchard to a degraded horse paddock with low biodiversity and high nutrients in the soils (not good for biodiversity). Since the restoration action we have been doing two main things with different student cohorts: 1) Tracking how the plants and animals change at the site over time; we expect that the biodiversity of plants and insects and birds will increase over time, as we remove nutrients by mowing or grazing the site and this is good for promoting more plant and hence also animal species. 2) We are testing whether we can attract even more insects to the site but planting different grassland plants under each of the 15 apple trees; more tasty clover and co species (Klee) or forbs species that attract pollinators but are not quite as tasty as the clover and co species. This is the first time that anybody has studied this option scientifically in a traditional orchard, and if it works, it may be a nice option for attracting more pollinators to many other orchard sites. We are embedded in a cultural landscape including returning wolves and a shephard who does not want to have her sheep at our site - there are plenty of socio-ecological topics within the overall topic of the magic orchard and its transformation over time. GENERAL INFO: This course is one several different courses in the sustainability minor (sustainable consumption, sustainable governance, life cycles)- you need to choose one of the main courses and then you stick to this course over two years. This course in the summer semester, Module 3 and 4, takes place in the third semester of your minor. Building on the preceding modules introducing you to transdisciplinary research and projects, and to the key concepts and methods in ecological restoration, this semester you take part in two seminars that move into the more active sphere.

Ecological Restoration for Sustainability (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Berta Martín-López

Termin:
wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 12:15 - 13:45 | 04.04.2022 - 08.07.2022 | C 12.105 | C 12.105

Inhalt: COURSE DESCRIPTION With the increasing human pressure on ecosystems and natural landscapes, one of the main challenges is to design and develop actions that supports the preservation of biodiversity, ecosystem services and human wellbeing. 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, this module does not only focus on biodiversity, but also on human societies and their wellbeing. During the seminar we will examine why we conserve biodiversity, how are biological and cultural diversities linked, and what are the key basic elements and processes to look at in order to think and design conservation policies and actions linked to wellbeing.

Grundlagen Nachhaltiger Entwicklung (Vorlesung)

Dozent/in: Roman Isaac, Julius John, Berta Martín-López, Andreas Möller, Jasmine Pearson, Vicky Temperton

Termin:
wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 10:15 - 11:45 | 04.04.2022 - 08.07.2022 | C 40.501 | C 40.501

Inhalt: The course provide lectures on a wide variety of sustainability topics that connect with the focus of each of the seminars, including biodiversity conservation and food security, sustainable consumption and governance for sustainability. Thus the course covers theory, approaches and tools relating to sustainability, including the ecological, social and governance realms. By the end of the course you will understand the basics for sustainability and will get basic knowledge of the projects conducted in the three seminars of this minor.

Ecological Restoration for Sustainability- Project Planning (Seminar)

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

Termin:
wöchentlich | Freitag | 09:00 - 12:00 | 04.04.2022 - 08.07.2022 | C 12.102 (Hinweis: Baumaßnahmen ab Nov./Dez. 2022 fertig)
Einzeltermin | Fr, 20.05.2022, 14:15 - Fr, 20.05.2022, 18:00 | C HS 3 (Umbau HS-Gang bis 31.12.22) S. Kommentar | gemeinsames Treffen aller Stränge

Inhalt: IMPORTANT: our first introductory session is on the 7th April, Friday, at 11.00 am (not the normal 9,15). It will be either live or on zoom depending on how things develop over the next period. Please make sure you attend this introductory meeting as all other tasks will depend on information you gain in this meeting and we will talk about the pecha kucha examination format. Students are now in four different groups: 1) Abiotic butterflies 2) Understory pollinators 3) Outreach and connection to nature 4) Camera traps and wildlife In this semester you will develop your plans you started for the posters in the winter and sample the orchard with your goals in mind. We plan to add a moth trap that we would sample 3 times in the summer, which could be a nice addition to the camera trap and wildlife group. We are currently losing pollinators, the bees and the flies and the butterflies, in our intensively managed landscapes and we need theses organisms not least to feed ourselves. What can we do? Come and help us to restore, study and manage cultural landscapes that can provide us with both food and the diversity of life!
