Dear Terrestrial Ecosystem Ecology students, due to the Corona situation and the insecurities concerning hybrid or digital teaching, the lecture will be held in absence of students e.g. in a purely digital format via collaborate. I will supply pdf-files as well as a recording of the lecture on moodle. The link to the first lecture on collaborate is https://moodle.univie.ac.at/mod/collaborate/view.php?id=5579349 The following lectures each have a separate link.
