Inhalt The principal characteristics and components of ecosystems will be introduced. Through slides (presentations) and textbooks such principles, important processes and interactions between organisms and the abiotic environment will be discussed.

Practical course
Based on current scientific literature, relevant topics will be assessed and critically analyzed. The critical reading and analysis of primary literature will be exercised with a focus on understanding the content of scientific articles, as well as on discussing and questioning the authors’ statements, using the presented data.
Lernziele Lecture
- Students know the components of ecosystems;
- they know how these components are interacting and influencing each other;
- they can mediate and argument this knowledge with specific vocabulary.

Practical course:
- Students are familiar with the primary literature in natural sciences;
- they acquire familiarity with the structure of articles in natural sciences;
- they develop strategies to efficiently and correctly analyze the content of such articles;
- they critically analyze the statement of a text, based on the presented data;
- they can interpret the provided data autonomously.

Literatur tba in class.
Bemerkungen Mandatory lecture for students of the MSD with focus areas in social sciences and in economics.
Students of the MSD with focus areas in natural sciences may attend if they have not already taken another comparable course. CP have to be accredit via learning agreement (LA) for the FASR module.

Teaching takes place:
- lecture: on Tuesdays.
- practical course: on Thursdays. Each group meets fortnightly. Details of group building during the first class.
