Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Part 1: Terrestrial ecosystems (Fiedler)

The lecture starts with a general account on how to classify (terrestrial) biota from an ecological point of view. Following the biome-concept of H. Walter the different life zones of the earth are presented. Each biome is presented regarding climate, soils, vegetation, animal life, and land use. Lectures focus on the (zonal) natural ecosystems but consider also azonal ecosystems (e.g. mires, mountains, ecosystems on poor soils), and cultivated land ecosystems.

Part 2: Freshwater systems (Battin)
Part 3: Marine systems (Herndl)
