Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Learning outcome: Students are able to recognize plants and microorganisms as
key players of element cycles and ecosystem scale processes. They can explain major physiological processes, such as CO2- and N2-fixation, or energy generation by respiration or fermentation. They are able to relate these cellular processes to the ecosystem scale and are able to identify the various controls over biological production and decomposition processes. Upon successful completion of the module, students can view the above described processes from an ecological perspective, specifically under the aspects of spatial and temporal variations of ecosystems, organismic interactions and community composition.
