Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The lecture gives a approach to numerous topics of urban ecology, among them: history; urban planning; urban sociology; urban biosphere (including pollutants, climate, floristic and faunistic aspects); ecosystem urbs; and the growth of cities. The perspective is broadened to cities worldwide, global trends and the future of towns.
One semester of urban ecology cannot suffice to cover the subject in its entirety. My lecture offers basic information and principles of a variety of fields of study; thought-provoking impulses also on topics usually not associated with urban ecology will be presented. Furthermore, I take the liberty of including aspects of history of science.

Assessment and permitted materials

written examination (open-book)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The lecture was primarily developed for students of biology but is expected to be understood by students of all other branches.
Learning outcomes: Students have a broad knowledge of urban ecology and its numerous topics

Examination topics

Power point presentations, partially in English, will be made available after each lecture.
Discussions after lectures possible

Reading list

No single textbook covers all topics of my lecture. Whenever possible, advices for further reading are given.
