Inhalt: Der Kurs ist als Exkursion nach Süddeutschland, insbesondere Bayern geplant, mit vorbereitenden Sitzungen als Blockveranstaltung. Es werden verschiedene typische Lebensräume besucht, an denen die Tagfalter als wichtige Zeigerorganismen für Naturschutzmaßnahmen erfasst werden sollen. Begleitend werden weitere für Naturschutzmaßnahmen relevante Artengruppen wie Heuschrecken oder Widderchen Beachtung finden. Dabei sind verschiedene reale Beispiele von laufenden Naturschutzaktivitäten eingebunden, bei denen besonders bedeutsame Einzelarten (z.B. Parnassius apollo, Apollofalter oder Chazara briseis, Berghexe) oder ganze Artengemeinschaften im Fokus stehen. Für wichtige Zielarten im Naturschutz werden Lebensraum, Lebensweise und Ökologie vertieft erarbeitet. Je nach konkreter Fragestellung sind für die Erfassung der Tagfalter oder Heuschrecken verschiedene Methoden anzuwenden (z.B. bei gebietsbezogenen Arterfassungen als Planungsgrundlage, FFH-Monitoring, Insekten-Monitoring, Schutzgebiets-Ausweisung, etc.). Besonders häufig genutzte Methoden werden in der Praxis erprobt. An allen Standorten wird jeweils analysiert, welche Gefährdungen bestehen und wie sie durch das Handeln verschiedener Akteure beeinflusst und möglichst abgewendet werden können. Dabei sind die Aufgaben der Naturschutzbehörden und Landschaftspflegeverbände von Bedeutung. Als Exkursionsziele sind vorgesehen: Kalkmagerrasen und Steinbrüche in der Frankenalb (Altmühltal), Brennenstandorte an Donau bzw. Lech, Streuwiesen und Moorgebiete im Alpenvorland (Allgäu).

Ecological Restoration for Sustainability- project development (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Jacqueline Loos, Vicky Temperton, Eva Völler

Termin:
wöchentlich | Freitag | 09:00 - 12:00 | 06.04.2021 - 09.07.2021 | C 12.013 | Veranstaltung startet online, später teilweise in Präsenz, wenn die Situation dies erlaubt

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.

Conservation Biology (Vorlesung/Übung)

Dozent/in: Jacqueline Loos, Emanuela W A Weidlich

Termin:
wöchentlich | Montag | 16:15 - 17:45 | 06.04.2021 - 09.07.2021 | Online-Veranstaltung

Inhalt: The conservation of species and ecosystems to support both the proper functioning of Ecosystems and the provisioning of natural resources to humans is a major sustainability challenge. This course provides an introduction to conservation science and its importance to sustainability. The main discussed topics will be: conceptual and historical aspects, conservation and restoration strategies, and tools for ecosystem conservation and management. The course will make links to core concepts/frameworks of sustainability science such as ecosystem services and social-ecological systems. We will have invited speakers, who work in different ecosystems around the world, to show how conservations strategies are organized in different places (with different degradation levels, social and economic situations). This weekly, theoretical component of Conservation Biology will be taught through a combination of lectures and student-led discussion. For the discussions, students will organise in groups, select a current 'hot' topic, provide relevant literature for the other students to read before the class, and facilitate a structured discussion including a short presentation. Students will also write individual essays on the significance of conservation biology for a specific sustainability topic.

Ecological Restoration for Sustainability- Project Planning (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Jacqueline Loos, Vicky Temperton, Eva Völler

Termin:
wöchentlich | Freitag | 09:00 - 12:00 | 06.04.2021 - 09.07.2021 | C 12.101 a | Veranstaltung startet online, später teilweise in Präsenz, wenn die Situation dies erlaubt
Einzeltermin | Fr, 02.07.2021, 09:00 - Fr, 02.07.2021, 11:45 | C HS 1 (Umbau HS-Gang 1.7.-31.12.21) S. Kommentar | mündliche Prüfung

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!

Inhalt: In dieser Feldübung werden wir uns mit verschiedene Lebensraumtypen des norddeutschen Tieflandes und ihrer spezifischen Biodiversität befassen. Hierzu werden drei ganztägige Freilandübungen durchgeführt, welche teilweise mit dem Zug und Rad, teilweise zu Fuß geplant sind. Die folgenden Touren sind Vorschläge, und können im Rahmen der Möglichkeiten nach der gemeinsamen Rücksprache am 31.5. noch nach Ihren Interessen oder Wünschen angepasst werden. Tour 1: Schaalseeregion, insbes. Salemer Moor, Binnengewässer Tour 2: Lüneburger Heide und angrenzende Waldgebiete, Hochmoor Tour 3: Lüneburger Stadtgrün und Umgebung, inkl. Agrarlandschaften Bei unseren Freilandübungen werden wir einen besonderen Blick auf die Vielfalt der norddeutschen Ökosysteme und ihrer spezifischen Zusammensetzung von Gefäßpflanzen und die Vielfalt von Schmetterlingen richten. Bei ausreichendem Interesse ist eine abendliche Nachtfaltersession in der Lüneburger Umgebung möglich. Wir werden sowohl die Funktionen als auch verschiedene Erfassungsmethoden der Zusammensetzung der Biodiversität kennenlernen - hierzu gehören die Landschaftserfassung, das landschaftsökologische Probenahmendesign, die Erfassung und die Auszählung verschiedener Arten.

Introduction to Spatial Sciences (Vorlesung)

Dozent/in: Jacqueline Loos, Simon Thomsen, Cormac Walsh

Termin:
wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 10:15 - 11:45 | 06.04.2021 - 09.07.2021 | Online-Veranstaltung

Inhalt: This lecture introduces a social-ecological system perspective on humans and their environment through a spatial science lens. Taking spatially explicit approaches, we will identify features and trends of society linked to location or spatial features. Thereby, this course will engage both with biophysical as well as social characteristics that relate to specific types of interactions between people and their environment. We therefore present basic concepts of Social-Ecological Systems, Human Geography, Economic Geography, Geomorphology, Soil Science, Climatology, Landscape Ecology, Spatial Planning, Mobility & Traffic, Urbanisation and Climate Adaptation to provide an overview of topics taught in the further courses of the Minor programme.
