Aims, contents and method of the course

Based on the course "Restoration Ecology and its Application in Nature Conservation" relevant ecological theories (e.g. regeneration of bogs and mires, revitalization of rivers, reintroduction of locally extinct species, reestablishment or mimicking of traditional land-use-systems) and concepts of restorative measures in nature conservation will be demonstrated by selected cases on site

Assessment and permitted materials

Finally students have to deliver completed records of the introduced projects

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

An overview of state-of-the-art restoration concepts (restoration of ecosystem-dynamics, conservation of traditional land use systems and landscape management, reintroduction of locally extinct species, etc.) will be given. Students should be able to identify endangered areas and to propose appropriate restoration approaches

Examination topics

The course will last 4 days. We will visit different restoration projects and discuss them with experts on site. In two cases we will practise "hands-on" eg. restoration by ringbarking neophytic trees
