Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The lectire focuses on the controls of biogeochemical cyles, specifically of the carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycle in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. A range of advanced ecologocal concepts and theories with regard to ecosystem ecology will complement the course.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written examination

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Successful students will be able to summarize advanced theories and concepts in ecosystem
ecology and biogeochemistry and to apply them to selected case studies from terrestrial and
aquatic ecosystems. They will be able to recognize and understand ecological processes at
the small scale and discuss their implications for large-scale biogeochemical fluxes. They will
be able to identify the major consequences of global change for biogeochemical cycles.

Examination topics

The course comprises lectures and discussion

Reading list

Books and other relevant literature will be discussed during the lectures
