We offer courses on geoecology and associated topics in different curricula (B. Sc. Geographie, B. Ed. Geographie, B. Sc. Geoökologie, M. Sc. Umweltgeographie, M. Sc. Geoökologie). Further information can be found here.
In this course, biomes of the world are introduced from a geoecological perspective (connecting the atmosphere, biosphere, pedosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere).
In irregular intervals, we offer projects on ecosystem research integrating different subdisciplines of geography.

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