Semester Frühjahrsemester 2021
Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende Karen Bussmann (karen.bussmann@unibas.ch)
Philipp Hirsch (philipp.hirsch@unibas.ch)
Patricia Holm (patricia.holm@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt Practical studies of the food web (plankton, invertebrates, predators) and key aspects of a selected ecosystem. Theoretical background of selected topics at the intersection of aquatic biology of either freshwater or marine systems in interaction with anthropogenic factors. The excursion will take place preferentially at the Strait of Gibraltar (Tarifa, Spain) or, alternatively, depending on the corona-related travel restrictions, in Switzerland
Lernziele Students
- are able to distinguish key species of the food web;
- have a knowledge about their habitat requirements and basic knowledge on their interactions with abiotic and biotic factors in their ecosystem;
- know typical fields of conflict between man and nature;
and are able to critically discuss possible solutions.
