Lehrveranstaltungen

Chemische, soziale und nachhaltige Aspekte der Wasserforschung (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Oliver Olsson

Termin:
wöchentlich | Dienstag | 14:15 - 17:45 | 18.10.2021 - 04.02.2022 | C 16.203

Inhalt: In der Veranstaltung wird Wasser als Ressource unter verschiedenen Gesichtspunkten entlang seines Nutzungszyklus betrachtet. Die Hauptthemenblöcke beschäftigen sich u.a. mit - der Verfügbarkeit von (sauberem) Wasser: Mengen, Qualität, Gesundheitsaspekte - der Schadstoffhydrologie: Umweltprozessen und Stofftransport in aquatischen Systemen - der Wassergütewirtschaft: Eintrag und Verbleib von Mikro-Schadstoffen sowie Grundlagen zu natürlichen und technischen Maßnahmen zur Wasserreinhaltung - Wirkung von Mikroschadstoffen insbesondere Ökotoxikologie, Mutagenität und Gentoxizität - den Möglichkeiten von Modellierung zur Simulation von Stoffeigenschaften, Stoffeinträgen und Stoffausbreitung Diese Veranstaltung baut auf die Lehrinhalte der Veranstaltung "Experimente zum biochemischen Abbau umweltrelevanter Substanzen" auf und geht vertiefend auf Bewertung, Wirkung und möglicher Maßnahmen von Schadstoffeinträgen in die aquatische Umwelt ein. This seminar examines the resource water from different perspectives. The main topics will be: - availability of (clean) water: quantity, health - contaminant hydrology: environmental transport, transfer and transformation processes - water quality management and water quality control - toxicological effects of micropollutants especially mutagenicity, genotoxicity and ecotoxicity - computational Modelling as applicable tool for the estimation of chemical properties, environmental concentrations and environmental fate micropollutants The seminar builds upon the course contents of “Experiments on the bio-chemical degradation of environmentally relevant substances” and focuses on the assessment, impact and potential measures in the case of pollution in the aquatic environment.

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.

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.
