MSc courses

GEO 78 Ökosystemforschung

We focus on complex interactions between the different processes in an ecosystem and present biogeochemical cycles including the effect of humans.

Globally biodiversity is declining, but how the decline might affect the functioning of ecosystems remains controversially discussed. This debate is tackled for different ecosystem compartments.

GEO 98 Analyse III: Ökosystemprozesse

Focus of this course is on the analysis of complex ecosystem interactions by means of state-of-the methodological approaches.

GEO 94 Forschungsseminar

In this course, we present ongoing work in the workgroup geocology (bachelor, master, PhD theses) complemented by talks of general interest (scientific writing, pitfalls in laboratory work etc.).
