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.
