Inhalt: Biodiversity is a core element of sustainable ecosystems. To protect biodiversity, it is crucial to understand the drivers of biodiversity and the consequences of its loss. We will address the scientific basis of biodiversity research, including the topics: how to measure and quantify biodiversity at different scales; how biodiversity affects ecosystem processes and ecosystem stability; which factors favor biodiversity and which factors are threats to biodiversity; native vs non-native biodiversity; local and global patterns of biodiversity. These topics will be introduced in the lecture and deepened with presentations and discussions about selected scientific publications and case studies.
