Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Did you know that around 45% of atmospherical oxigen is produced by algae? This exercise offers insights into the fascinating world of algae, a group which is significantly involved in global flow patterns. Major algae groups will be discussed and important representatives will be introduced (light microscope and SEM). Additionally, we offer an introduction into phylogenetic analyses and latest results of algal relationships. Language will be either German or English according to requirements.
