Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The Danube floodplains east of Vienna represent one of the last remaining vast stretches of floodplain forests in Central Europe. Embedded within the forest matrix are a large number of meadows. In the framework of this field course we will study the importance of different flooding regimes and meadow management on species assemblages of different insect groups (e.g. butterflies, grasshoppers).

The field work will be conducted in the Donau-Auen National Park. Costs for accommodation (including breakfast) will be approximately 250 €.

Assessment and permitted materials

The course will require active participation in field work, an oral presentation of the results and writing of the final report (Bachelor thesis). The oral presentation will contribute 40%, the final report will contribute 60% to the grade.
